Item Details

American modernist concept design bespoke rocking chairs. Made from sustainable materials. Strap design. Vibrant colours and substantial comfortable statement chairs. Incredible workmanship not seen before. Molded Easy Chair appropriate for indoor/outdoor commercial, institutional and residential use. Possibly Prototype design by Ralph Rapson / Adrian Pearsall / Frank Gehry / Ron Arad / Dripta Roy. From Eames to Gehry, countless design visionaries have left their mark on the American rocking chair, creating an object that synthesizes both napping and modernism. The history of the rocking chair begins with the first instance of the word rokken, which was used to describe whoever rocked a cradle. Chaucer, an eternal trendsetter, said: “The cradel at hir beddes feet is set to rokken”—which roughly translates to “If the cradle is a rocking, don’t come a knocking.”
