Roo / Rocking toy


Discipline: Product

The basic idea behind the Roo rocker was to find a shape with the potential to be produced out of a single package of flat plywood sheets, while being reminiscent of a classic toy. Some inspiration came from the traditional paper folding technique of origami. The minimalistic, yet archetypal shape gives the immediate impression of a rocking toy. For some, it may look more like a sheep, or kangaroo; for others, it still looks like a good old rocking horse. A significant functional advantage over a classic rocker is the stackability of the Roo. It is an ideal space saver. Available in birch, oak, beech, walnut or laminate.
