014 Norppa Rocking Toy


About 014 Norppa Rocking Toy

014 Norppa Rocking Toy designed by Studiomama for Vaarnii. Norppa is a rocking toy that takes its name and form from the endangered Finnish Norppa seal. Whilst all Vaarnii products are designed to last, this concept is especially appropriate for Norppa, an object that should be cherished by multiple generations. Norppa is skilfully milled from solid pine with a distinctive grain that adds contour and expression to the seal shape and face. Every characterful Norppa Rocking Toy will be subtly different from the next.
Made in Finland of Finnish pine. All Vaarnii products are made locally by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pinewood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests. Vaarnii's outdoor products are made of heat-treated pine, Lunawood ThermoWood®. Thermowood is a non-toxic material produced using only heat and steam. The heat treatment makes the furniture weatherproof, so no other surface treatment is required. If you wish, you can treat your Osa furniture with natural wood finishes for the exterior (such as decking oil), which can help keep the product clean.  Vaarnii Products will start reacting with UV light very quickly and begin changing color towards a beautiful silver tone once unboxed. The products will reach their final color after approximately one year outdoors. Contact us for a sample piece of the aged thermowood. Although Vaarnii's pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
