The SOL Rocking Chair Looks Like a Stick Seat

The SOL Rocking Chair is colorful and contemporary. Created by French designer Constance Guisset for the Italian furniture manufacturer Molteni & C, it has a happy aesthetic that would put a smile on the face of even the most stoic individual.

The interesting thing about the SOL Rocking Chair is that it doesn't look like a rocking chair at all. The base is straight, so it's hard to understand that the device can move back and forth. Another point not immediately perceivable is the narrowness of the base. The front edge slopes up and down subtly to create the perfect angle for rocking. Thus, the SOL Rocking Chair simply provides an updated aesthetic to a classic piece of furniture.
