Luca Boscardin's collection of rocking animals,Calvacade, form a delightful menagerie. Each fashioned from a single piece of wood, the collection features a sweet white horse, a dashing zebra, a tiny reindeer, a tall giraffe, and a snappy alligator. These rockers are made to both rock and scoot, and include a set of flip-down wheels for mobile play.
Boscardin is an Amsterdam-based Italian designer focusing on toy design and illustration. He is part of the FRIDAYPROJECT collective and exhibited at Milan Design Week in 2012, 2013, and 2014. His whimsical graphic art can also be found on materials for products, apps, and businesses.
