The Air Rocking Chair is Not the Flimsy Furnishing it Appears to Be

It would be mind bending to behold the prototype of this Air Rocking Chair, which would undoubtedly be welcomed into a class of featherweight furniture that includes the 1.3 kg chair. Peder Overby designed this paper-thin perch as part of an entrepreneurship project, specifying the use of sustainable components.

An impossibly thin wooden framework holds the oscillating seat together upon gently curving rockers. The material used for the sitting surface and the backrest is unfortunately not described, but it's discernibly thin like a thick card.

These clean computer images of the Air Rocking Chair give the product the semblance of a miniature mockup. In a way it appears much like the life-size experiment of an avid model airplane builder, wishing to explore the craft of making furniture.
