Iconic Cloud Chair Rocking Chair by Pia Weinberg - Maison Deux

Home > Winners > #66989


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Iconic Cloud Chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Rocking Chair

INSPIRATION:
The Iconic Cloud, part of a series or rockers (i.e. cloud, moon and watermelon) is the kick-off for designing a home & living for kids and parents alike. A world where two generations can live in harmony, rather than both have their own specific products that are totally out of style and use. In this case it should mix style, shape and materials in such a way that both grown-ups and kids enjoy using them. The solution is a design, made from solid oak and wool that will last for generations.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The new generation of rocking horses. Handcrafted in the Netherlands from solid French oak with a soft finish and upholstered with the highest quality fabric made from 100% wool by Kvadrat. Rubber strips are added to the legs to make sure the floor stays nice and clean. Plus some stoppers to swing modestly. Extensively tried and independently tested, marked with CE / ASTM approval. Recommended for children over 18 months.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Learn while playing. Rocking our Iconics emphasizes a child s coordination and balance skills. Besides, it is the foundation for imaginative play. Who said that a rocking horse should be an actual horse. Take the joyride.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is launched in collaboration with Parisian Concept Store collete during the Paris Design Week and presented at Maison & Objet in September 2016.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Handcrafted in the Netherlands, when using local and natural sources like solid oak and 100% wool. Materials that are long lasting and naturally child-friendly. In collaboration with a local factory and upholstering company we are able to produce high quality design pieces.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Size 690 x 270 x 400 mm.

TAGS:
Rocking Horse, Dutch Design, Kids, Parents, Chair

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The Iconic Rockers, a series of different icons (i.e. cloud, moon and watermelon) are the kick-off for designing a home & living for kids and parents alike. A world where two generations can live in harmony, rather than both have their own specific products that are totally out of style and use. In this case it should mix style, shape and materials in such a way that both grown-ups and kids enjoy using them. The challenge is to use materials and finishes that match both targets, safe in style. Therefor Pia chose to work with framework made from solid French oak and wool.

CHALLENGE:
To create a piece that shows a minimalistic design with a touch of fun. Be able to easily blend into the rest of the interior and at the same time attracts children to play and develop their skills.
