australian-born designer marc newson has made a rocking horse for magis. ‘rocky’ is a modern take on a traditional object, a pop version taking its character loosely from medieval jousting horses. a historic childhood icon, the rocking horse is in newson’s interpretation dressed up as a cowboy. the parallelogram motion mimics the movement of the traditional toy. ‘rocky’ is made in recycled polyethylene through rotational moulding – a production process, ideal for hollow items.
