Say “giddyup” to a camel and you’ll probably draw a blank stare. The magic phrase, according to Kalon Studios, is “hut-hut,” which also happens to be the name of its abstract interpretation of the rocking horse (or should that be rocking camel?). Would-be camel riders will only have to wait a tick before they can get their mitts on a Hut-Hut of their own. Both the sleek child-size rocker and its grownup counterpart will make their debut in Milan this week during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.

Crafted entirely from solid wood, the rocking-stool will be made-to-order domestically in the United States in Forestry Stewardship Council-certified Spanish cedar, walnut, cork, maple, or bamboo.

The engraved star pattern is the product of the five-axis computed-numerically controlled (CNC) machine that Kalon enlisted to create the Hut-Hut. Instead of resurfacing the rocker to hide the machining marks, Kalon decided to make them a decorative feature.

The company’s decision did more than give the Hut-Hut its distinctive and ultramodern lines: The truncated process also reduces machining time by 75%.

    …given the apparent contours and those required for someone to sit and the horse actually rock nicely, the first image looks like the product has been photographed upside down unless it’ just an unfortunate angle? ‘;-? …lovely piece of form making though… given the state of the global economy and lack of anyone being accountable for our mysery, an adult size one may be a winner!! ;’D!!!
