Let It Rock!
The Spring solstice has finally arrived and passed, which means those warm nights are going to last longer–perfect for evenings when you want to watch the sunsets. There’s a bunch of modern rockers out there, perfect for this outdoor (and even indoor) activity and that function on many levels.
The Keinu rocking chair stems straight from a 1980s Eero Aarnio sketch and can sit pretty in an office. The design is a great excuse to get up and out of your confined desk chair. Buy the excuse at the FinnishDesignShop.
The David Trubridge rocking chair design is the essence of simplicity. The design can be ordered in three different types of wood: European Oak, European Beech, or New Zealand Beech (which happens to come from a newly established and sustainably managed forest down under). To get your hands on this South Pacific variation (it can be a bit obscure), get in touch with the Italian company Whiteflax.
Designed by Alban-Sebastian Gilles, the Neo rocking chair is fully upholstered and comes with aluminum or oak arms. Also, a sweet lil’ treat is the Comforel lumbar back pillow thrown in with the piece. To customize your design from a wide range of colors and to give your lower back the rest it needs, visit Ligne Roset.
The Relaxer Rocking Chair seems to be the most transitional rocker on the block. Its Danish designer, Verner Panton, has enjoyed a renaissance in the past few years with many of his designs expected to reach the status of “design icons of the 20th century.” The best part? It’s ergonomically fit for any body size and posture. Visit Matzform for this iconic piece.
An updated version of Charles Eames’ classic rocker design, the Chuck Rocking Chair by Jean-Marie Massaud can be the quirky piece that sits in the corner or the comfort-comes-without-color piece you’ve always hunted for. End your hunt at E&Y.
Something about the MORPHOGENESIS CHAISE is reminiscent of The Matrix (Morpheus’s name is even part of the title!), but that doesn’t mean that Timothy Schreiber’s futurisitc design won’t work in an industrial loft. The highly researched piece made its debut at last year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, and now, we must all eagerly await until the London designer decides to make it available for purchase. Idle away the time at the designer’s site.
