Australian designer Marc Newson has created a child’s rocking horse for the Italian brand Magis, which was on show at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan last week. ‘Rocky’ is available in black, white and brown, and the toy’s simplicity is accentuated by the gold rope used as reins.

The second of Marc Newson’s designs for children, Rocky is a modern take on a traditional object, a pop version taking its character loosely from medieval jousting horses. The parallelogram motion mimics the movement of a traditional rocking horse. It is made from rotationally moulded polyethylene chosen for both its durability and recyclability.
