iF concept design award

Reduction of the form to its main components was the design approach of this project. One frame body and padding with an optimal shape that fulfils all anatomical conditions for horse and rider. The basic saddle frame is made of carbon in various strengths. The rider’s seat and the padding can be manufactured in leather or fibre, depending on individual preferences. These results in a fixed basic shape, which can be adjusted in a range of ways through materials, colors or structures and depend on the individual requirements.
