A playful design intervention with Magis' Puppy.
This project is a tribute to my favourite object by Magis, designed by the Finnish designer Eero Aarnio. The add-on rocking parts were designed according to the product's original identity. The process had a big focus on combining of both digital and physical modelling.
Magis provided the original 3d file of the Puppy, allowing the project to be precisely based on the original Puppy. The the add-on parts follow the aesthetics and identity of the original design.
Balancing digital and handmade constructive methods was essential to the project's development, as the parts were too big for accessible 3d printers available.
The final design involved two cardboard laser cut structure, filled up by expansive foam and carefully finished and painted.
