Description

Plywood was a favoured material for progressive modernist designers and architects throughout the 20th century. With it's combined strength, flexibility, and lightness of form the layered timber could be used to create innovative and interesting designs that were previously not achievable. This elegant chair pushes the boundaries of the material with it's over-sized and expressive full loop rockers and refined frame.

The chair is also designed to be adjusted into three seating positions depending on preference for recline. It's not just a memorable design but a highly comfortable rocking chair that will stand out in any contemporary setting.
