There aren't many rocking cradles on the market anymore, despite the fact that the form has functioned successfully for hundreds of generations of babies. Rockid by Ontwerpduo is a revival of the old nursery staple, catering to the contemporary parent who has been conditioned by convenience in design.
This hybrid piece of furniture is remarkably simple, comprising a set of curved wooden staves to combine a classic rocking chair and an oscillating crib. The two are fixed together with the seat facing perpendicularly, at the perfect angle for dad or mom to push back and forth with his or her feet.
The Rockid by Ontwerpduo presents a tired parent with a place to repose, read a book, comfort his restless baby and initiate and experience the gentle swaying that will put the child to sleep.
