Iconic Cloud (Rocking Chair) by Woes Weinberg
2017 - 2018, Platinum A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The Iconic Cloud, part of a series or rockers (i.e. cloud, moon and watermelon) is the kick-off for designing a home & living for kids and parents alike. A world where two generations can live in harmony, rather than both have their own specific products that are totally out of style and use. In this case it should mix style, shape and materials in such a way that both grown-ups and kids enjoy using them. The solution is a design, made from solid oak and wool that will last for generations.
Creativity
The new generation of rocking horses. Handcrafted in the Netherlands from solid French oak with a soft finish and upholstered with the highest quality fabric made from 100% wool by Kvadrat. Rubber strips are added to the legs to make sure the floor stays nice and clean. Plus some stoppers to swing modestly. Extensively tried and independently tested, marked with CE / ASTM approval. Recommended for children over 18 months.
Design Challenges
To create a piece that shows a minimalistic design with a touch of fun. Be able to easily blend into the rest of the interior and at the same time attracts children to play and develop their skills.
Production Technology
Handcrafted in the Netherlands, when using local and natural sources like solid oak and 100% wool. Materials that are long lasting and naturally child-friendly. In collaboration with a local factory and upholstering company we are able to produce high quality design pieces.
