Hibo Hippopotamus by Woud Denmark
Designed by Steffen Juul
Rina captures the nature of rhinos in a simple and lovable sculpture made from solid oak. The expression of the rhinoceros can change as the head can be tilted to either side giving Rina a charming and wondering look on its face. On its own or together with its child/mother, Rina will bring enjoyment to any room it enters. Rina builds upon an old tradition among Danish architects and designers to make expressive wooden sculptures.
About the designer
Steffen Juul is a graduate from the Danish Design School and since 1996, he has been running his own studio. “It is the attraction of the design, which allows users to interact with it. Form, function, attitude and idea is mixed and everything superfluous is cut away. Without attraction neither love, hate or joy can exist. I am driven by the design attractiveness and throughout the design process; my focus is always to imagine the experience the user gets. Time changes our perception of the things we surround ourselves with and designing for tomorrow is a daily inspiration and a glorious challenge”.
