London studio Doshi Levien have created a wonderful piece of furniture for your children. Showcased at the imm cologne in Germany, the Rocker is perfect and fun for kids. Having a dream which was to create something that celebrates an equal exchange and plurality of values relating to different societies, material and visual culture, they came up with this amazing piece.
After observing children, the designers realized that they aren’t interested in figurative items, but everyday objects that are not intended for play. Moreover, kids find their own imaginative purpose for any object already in the house. This is what made them create a Rocker that is like a found object, an improvised ride.
Created for Richard Lampert, the Rocker will be part of the new children’s collection. Its plastic, hourglass-shape body rests simply on two wooden runners, guaranteeing hours of rocking fun, and, at the same time, producing a piece that is as much a design element as it is a plaything. Furthermore the combination of natural, unfinished wood and white plastic is timeless and manages to be both elegant and playful. Beautiful in form, finishing and design the Rocker will bring a glint to your eye, even if your childhood is long behind you.
