Unser Hessen Design Competition 2020 Preisträger Darius Zalzadeh mit seinem Schaukelpferd GALOP ist nicht nur bei den German Design Graduates dabei, sondern nun auch nominiert für den Kids Design Award 2020!
„With GALOP, the tenth nomination for the Kids Design Award 2020, we close the presentation of the nominees. GALOP is the contribution of the budding graduate designer Darius Zalzadeh from Kassel. In his work he takes on a "classic of the nursery" – the good old rocking horse.
GALOP is the reinterpretation of the rocking horse taking into account design approaches such as a "less is more" by the famous german-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe or a "less but better" by the German designer Dieter Rams. At the same time, design elements of Eamesian embossing can be identified. The appearance of the rocking horse is characterised by the sweeping lines of the frame and its extraordinarily simple and timeless form. The elegant curves of the bent tubular steel frame presents in its center, seemingly floating, the ergonomic and three-dimensionally shaped seat shell made out of moulded wood. The seat surface merges smoothly into a curve, allowing smaller children to sit further forward.“
