GRO^ is a new interpretation of the classic rocking horse. With a simple aesthetic that speaks to adults and with a simple function that speaks to children.
GRO^ is built on Fritz Hansen's knowledge about furniture made of veneers, as well as an idea to create a children's furniture that contains a simple Scandinavian style.
