MAPLE VENEERED SEATING DEVICE
While I was in Denmark I got the chance to experience and see all different kinds of Scandinavian design products.
Out of those products a modern interpretation of a rocking horse stood out to me. It was simple, it was playful, and
I wanted to design a seating device incorporating those elements.
Horse offers users the playful experience of pretending to be like a horseback rider or like a Victorian-era character on a sidesaddle. The top of the seat is curved, similar to a saddle, to provide comfortable seating. The legs can be taken apart easily with no fasteners. Also the seat will not slip when users sit down due to the pressure holding onto the seat.
The inside of the seat is stained mahogany red to give an amusing look of a tree is turned inside out.
