A new Nordic perspective

Ducky is a simple and classic wooden figure full of nostalgia and character. Ducky the wooden duck is designed by the Israeli designer Dor Carmon and is a timeless design product that adds an element of humour and enjoyment to the home.
Inspired by traditional wooden toys, Dor Carmon created Ducky in the wake of his daughter's birth. Although it was only when he had first designed the wooden duck, that he saw Ducky’s potential as a product and started fine-tuning its lines and proportions. Ducky has been designed without unnecessary details and has a stringent, symmetrical and almost sculptural feel. The large wheels at the front help to break up the tight symmetry and add a personal expression.
Dor Carmon says, ”I love to design characters. To create something aesthetic that doesn't necessarily need to be functional is a form of relaxation for me. It's a nice break from my normal day where I work primarily with functional product design. Apart from that, I wanted to design a special item for my daughter. It had to be something timeless, emotive and irreplaceable that she could have with her throughout her adult life.”
Ducky is made of sturdy, solid materials and is available in grey or oak with matching wheels. With its clean and simple silhouette, Ducky is an all-round item that changes character according to where it is placed in the home. Whether it is used as a decorative piece in the bedroom, to liven up the living room or for adding cosiness to the nursery, Ducky will look great in any setting.
