Reinvented Rocker

The rocking chair has been given a contemporary, out-of-home update

Implications - The rocking chair has been modernized for both personal and industrial use. Whether it's through using 3D printed manufacturing methods, or incorporating a sculptural aesthetic, the revamped rocking chair is no longer an old-world domestic staple, but an engaging contemporary design. The reemergence of such a classic piece not only reveals the circular nature of design, but also suggests that a modern aesthetic can be playful in its form.
