by Harry / August 16, 2013
MOCO LOCO is 10 years on the web this year, to mark the occasion this week we're talking to designers from where we began, our home town of Montreal. We asked designer Guillaume Sasseville which work initially got him the most attention.

"Jump, a jumping rope pour Christofle - ├ęcal. I couldn't find who invented the jumping rope, probably because this toy is so old that nobody really remembers. I like that!

The parallel is there: an iconic toy vs. the long lasting high quality Christofle craftsmanship. This item is the first of a series of 'non-design' of projects. This means that I kept the object in its original state, a rope with a knot at each end. This is its simplest evocation and probably the very first form of the jumping rope.

Jump was a great success, it was one of those projects that contains a strong and simple idea, you feel no gap between the idea, function and production."
