One of the most interesting projects viewed at Salone del Mobile Milano 2016 is a beautiful reinterpretation of the traditional rocking horse by Japanese studio Nendo for Kartell Kids Collection.

The designer created H-horse using only three curved pieces of transparent plastic, referencing the steel I-beams — also known as H-beams — used to construct large buildings and bridges.

In cross-section they are shaped literally like an “H” and it is this characteristic that gives the structure its mechanical strength. By applying this concept directly to a child’s rocking horse, a form has been created that displays both function and strength, even with the minimum use of materials.

A particular and simple toy by Kartell, an Italian company focused on the manufacturing of beautiful plastic furniture and accessories.
