Horse is a minimalistic and honest redesign of the rocking horse. With Scandinavian aesthetics and simplicity of form, it is not only a contemporary but a timeless piece. Rui Tomás says »I can’t simplify the shape any more; the goal is completed!« It is functional and well made, and citing Dieter Rams »Only something that is well made can be beautiful.« It is made of solid surface and solid ash. It was technically challenging to produce due to its tight compound curves, but the result in a robust toy.
Statement of the jury
Seemingly a simple, high quality and easy to clean Scandinavian reinterpretation of the classic rocking horse. With unpretentious curved lines, the understated horse presents itself as an active toy for children while its contemporary look and feel is likely to fit into any home.
