This modern upholstered rocka is a unique twist on the classic rocking chair. It offers comfort, style and functionality for a new family. The bent Koto and Eucalyptus veneer frame is put together using traditional joining methods, while the painted rockers are shaped from White ash, offering incredible strength and durability. The rockers are available in a variety of colours to match the colour scheme of the nursery. Safety stoppers prevent tipping over backwards, while rubber strips prevent the chair from damaging the floor. The rocking motion helps put babies to sleep and enables the mother to sit down and get up easily with child in arms.
A scale model prototype.
The legs of the rocker were made using pieces of vaneer, that were laminated together by way of a jig.
An old office chair was sourced and reupholstered for the rocker.
