DESIGN NAME:
Rocking Cow / renewable swiss traditions

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Rocking Cow, interior product

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration was the original swiss traditions, for this project the old swiss traditions: cow ride. The cow has been used previously as a conveyance, I would like to bring this tradition back. And for a young boy, lm1

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Switzerland has got many beautiful, old traditions. Some are almost forgotten, because no one is practicing them anymore. Others still exist, but we just don’t recognise them. With my label „renewable Swiss traditions“ it’s my task to redesign these old customs and bringing them back into the spotlight. But how? My objective isn’t to reinvent an old tradition. I just apply it to a product we use in our daily lives. An old, but almost forgotten and for some even unknown tradition is, cow riding. I just asked myself: “how can I bring it back into peoples minds?” The basic idea was putting together a classic rocking chair and a cow in a contemporary new design. So I bring it back into the spotlight and even the smallest kid gets into touch with this almost forgotten tradition.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
There are loads of possibilities to redesign products of our daily lives with a connection to old Swiss traditions. This opens a whole new market.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Because it’s all about Swiss traditions, the products have to be made in Switzerland. My research shows that we have many trading companies and craftsmen with the needed know how. Another idea is that some of the earnings could be used for charity. Björn Ischi

CHALLENGE:
How do I get a Swiss traditions to a product that everyone knows and can use? Emotions not only for Swiss people! New products to bring back an old tradition.
