The V-2 rocket from World War II became an icon in the 1950s a symbol of futuristic technology and the American space program. It became iconic with children as the rocket that took the character Tin Tin to the moon.
The name V-2 Schneider comes from a track from 1977 by David Bowie, named after one of the co-founders of Kraftwerk a big influence on his music. The rocket is a familiar shape with hints of the lava lamp with its glowing light, and a children’s model of a rocket, but re-defined for the modern home. This streamlined rocket is a part of the historical inheritance of our generation from WWII.
