Take a close look at the Rocking Verner -- do you notice anything unusual about it? Perhaps the contemporary rocking chair seems to embody an abstract sculptural form, but tilt your head 90 degrees and you will discern the fluid form of the famous Panton Chair.

David Schellander and Stefanie Richtsfeld endeavored to incorporate the familiar seat into a fresh and modern rocking horse design. They tipped the piece onto its front and mounted it on a pair of long and elegant timber rockers and provided a wooden back brace with a handle. The new seat of the Rocking Verner is a fabric sling that's been fixed between the original chair's footing and the top of the backrest. Despite the technique of appropriation, this object exudes uniqueness. Stats for Oscillating Sideways Seats Trending: This Year & Average
