Rocking Horse Raises Awareness

As we begin to see more products focus on renewable energy and sustainable design it becomes apparent that we can also expect to see a cultivation of this newfound awareness in children starting at a very young age. The Calidu rocking horse is one design that aims to reinforce this idea by producing just enough power to light it’s OLED lights simply by rocking or collecting sunlight. The sturdy, tip-resistant horse is made of stainless steel, solid oak, an herbal oil finish, and leather fringe tail.

Designer: Günther Schunn

    Is there any details of how this would work or is that for the engineers to work out? Dynamos, Piezo-electric strips or is it magic fairy dust?

    I think that this piece is clean and simple by itself, lovely in fact. If made with sustainable materials and upcycling in mind, it would be much more resonant than the — apparently invisible — LEDs, solar panels and piezoelectrics. Not to mention that adding LEDs, solar panels and piezoelectrics would make the end product much less sustainably built, likely negating any value added. I don't think kids will make a connection with twinkly lights but the parents will make a connection with crisp modernist design and sustainable materials.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Just nice craftsmanship, not really changing the world with it, but sustainable materials is a plus.
