Have you seen the ‘H-Horse‘ yet? The Japanese designer studio Nendo has created a transparent plastic rocking horse inspired by H-beams, architectural steel beams used in large built works like skyscrapers and bridges. From the side, the toy has the curved profile of a traditional rocking horse. But its ends create the shape of an H or I, depending on the orientation.
