014 Norppa Rocking Toy

014 Norppa Rocking Toy by Studiomama for Vaarnii.

A play on the traditional rocking horse, Norppa is a jubilant rocking toy that takes its name and shape from the Finnish Norppa ringed seal.

The exultant character has been skilfully milled from solid pine with the unique knots and grains of the pinewood used to emulate the Norppa seal's distinctive circular markings on its skin. Vaarnii's expert artisans have carefully chosen particular cuts of wood for their properties, selecting a darker section of pine to form the contrasting whiskers and certain grain sections to create shallow contours for the eyes.

Norppa has dual functionality. It has been designed with a hidden cavity/shelf underneath so that when your little ones have outgrown the rocking seat, it can be turned on its side and used as a sculptural side table with storage.

The cheerful piece has been designed to last with the intent that multiple generations can treasure it. Pinewood is a soft material and is susceptible to dents, meaning your markings will be able to be marvelled by future generations.

Materials Dropdown

Once a popular material amongst Finnish artisans, Vaarnii wants to revive the use of Pine Wood within furniture construction.

The pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests, is PEFC certified and slow grown, finished with a stain-resistant, transparent, matte oil wax.

As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins in the wood, pine develops a rich honey colour over time.

Please note: due to the soft nature of pinewood, the material is prone to developing scratches and dents. Vaarnii believes these markings are to be celebrated and viewed as building to the uniqueness and charm of the product.
