fabian von spreckelsen: rocks the big pony


This is a little preview for the upcoming Design Week in Milan next week. My friend Fabian von Spreckelsen will present a black life-size pony that moves similar to a regular horse at the new Ventura Lambrate district.

As a child the Maastricht-based designer was disappointed by his own rocking horse. Rocking back and forth by shifting your weight wasn’t
the movement he found watching the animal.

Now, about 25 years later, he designed ‘Galoper grand’, a black leather coated horse that swings up and down when you sit on it and that gives you the ultimate experience, even if you are a grown up.

The huge horse needs a massive box to be transported safety to Italy.
