Rocky Rocking Horse

View text
Next project Autumn / Winter 2012 Previous project THE SUB

The second of Marc’s designs for children, Rocky is a modern take on a traditional object, a pop version taking its character loosely from medieval jousting horses.

The parallelogram motion mimics the movement of a traditional rocking horse.

It is made from rotationally moulded polyethylene chosen for both its durability and recyclability.
