This rocking chair by designer Hongtao Zhou has a strange but very attractive design.

Yanko Design notes, "It all comes together in a searies[sic] of joists and notches so fundamentally, it's adjustable. And for you greenies out there, it's made of renewable materials. I almost feel like it needs a motor or something so I can zip across the floor".

I can't help but like the design because the rocking chair looks so cute. But it looks flimsy to me. It looks more like an art piece than a fully functional rocking chair.
