Rocking Squares

 

 
Designed by:
Frederick Roijé

Why we love it: We love that this uses abstract forms to represent a common and unmistakable iconic child’s play thing – but like so many modern rocking horses, it’s adult-sized.

Giulia

Why we love it: This children’s rocking horse is made from a single solid piece of wood, crafted with comfortable curves and featuring a leather-covered handle bar. Love its simplicity and its raw beauty.

Why we love it: This one has an obvious environmental appeal, made from 100% recycled cardboard, but it’s also an elegant take on a classic design.
