Steel Pony Rocker by J.Key Schneyorson
There aren’t many variations in the case of the rocking horse. The rocking chair has been extensively exploited and constantly reinvented but the rocking horse has more or less remained the same ever since it was introduced in our homes. Still, it doesn’t mean that the subject is closed. In fact, as J.Key Schneyorson shows us, it’s never too late to revisit an idea.
J.Key Schneyorson has designed the Steel Pony Rocker. It’s a modern version of the rocking horse and it has a design that shows the pure essence of this item. It’s a very abstract approach to the classical design and the emphasis is on the steel structure. This version presents a more modern rocking horse. It seems to have only the pure structure, the skeleton and nothing more. It might not seem as friendly as the classical versions at first but once you get to analyze it closely you can see that it’s more than just another design or approach on a classical subject but a real work of art.
The Steel Pony Rocker is a reinterpretation of the rocking horse and it offers a new perspective. It has a very different look but this only makes it stand out. It’s composed of a minimalist steel structure complemented by a braided leather strip seat. There are no other details or accessories. It’s the simplicity of the design that makes this piece so interesting and unique.
