Carousels and ferriswheels have always fascinated children and adults all over the world. This in mind I started designing a product which I haven’t seen before: a rocking horse for adults and children. Traditionally a rocking horse only rocks back and forth, but this horse has a base which also enables us to spin. And because the horse is made in Spain, it was naturally named after Don Quixote’s world famous horse, Rosinante.
Plastic pioneer master and a living legend of modern design. His now iconic plastic creations include the Ball (1963), the Pastil (1968), and the Bubble (1968) chairs which echo the pop culture and spirit of their time. Many of Aarnio’s works are included in the world’s most prestigious museums, including Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.
