2. Bolts and nuts are overrated.
3. Always add radii when designing

The design process of this rocking horse was focused on stability without any external joints. The approach to achieve this was a system of several pieces that would work as both joints and features of the actual horse.
Two outline pieces that serve as a base and eleven smaller parts that comprised the seat, the handles or horsehair and the feet rest. The final design indirectly reflects form after function, where the functional characteristics go hand by hand with the asthetic decisions made through the process.
Cohesion within the system
Same joint for all building blocks
Born out of one square meter of milled plywood, this rocking horsey combines simplicity, elegance and a touch of playfulness. Created with only one square meter of wood and with space and material efficiency, the piece is easy to assemble through a costumer friendly interlocking system. Each piece is designed accordingly to fit perfecly unto the main base base without losing the horse silluette.
