Ducky is a simple and classic wooden figure full of nostalgia and character. The Israeli designer Dor Carmon created Ducky in the wake of his daughter's birth, inspired by traditional wooden toys. Although it was only when he had first designed the wooden duck, that he saw its potential as a product.
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 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.”
