Rocking horse: upcycled from the street by Kalbut DSGN – upcycleDZINE
Like I said before, as a graphic designer I’m always attracted by visuals that use lines, colors and text/characters. And traffic signs are absolutely no exception. What’s really great about these signs are the markings from all those years of being used in traffic. They give these upcycled objects even more beauty and character.

Here on upcycleDZINE we’ve seen some pretty great designs using traffic signs. Just look at Speed Lights by Brett Coelho, Cyclesign by Trent Jansen Studio and last but not least the famous Traffic Sign Furniture by Boris Bally. All showing that discarded traffic signs can have a second life.

Today I want to show you more upcycle design that makes use of these traffic signs. The ‘Rocking Horse‘ design is by Kalbut DSGN [Fb], based in Liège | Belgium, a simple and self-made designs and graphics developer. ‘Funky and against any hype or over-trendy thing. And that’s why Kalbut DSGN creates fantastic and very original upcycle design pieces.’

Rocking horses are only made with reclaimed materials from the street like a traffic sign, tyre, handlebar and other bike parts. And the thing I like most is that all these parts are so recognizable. Especially the traffic sign that once told you what you where prohibited to do.
