H HORSE KARTELL KIDS
ROCKING HORSE LISSONI
H-horse is a new product for children projected by Nendo for Kartell who at Salone del mobile 2016 launches the new Kartell Kids line.
Steel beams with H profile, usually used in large skyscraper and bridge structures, are very strong and highly efficient. Their H-shaped cross-section is the characteristic that gives the structure its high mechanical strength.
By applying this structural concept directly to the children’s rocking horse, Nendo has created a module that allows you to visualize both its function and strength, with minimal use of material. Modifying the function of this component by adding a sense of playfulness is a design process that can also be traced back to the history of Kartell, which began with the production and sale of highly functional laboratory equipment and is now engaged in the production of design furniture and accessories in plastic.
