These alluring 'Miss Dondola' up-cycled chairs by Angela Missoni playfully combine recycled wooden casks with vibrantly multicolored padded seat design to create an ingenious mobile hanging rocker.

Angela Missoni gained inspiration for these creatively innovative hanging mobile chairs when she saw the curved wooden slabs of vintage wooden caskets. Angela decided to up-cycle the unused wood and use the natural curvature of the slabs to make an elegantly C-shaped rocker. The slabs are kept together with colorful interwoven knotted strings that help to keep the slabs parallel to one another. On each chair is a beautifully vibrant technicolor seat padding that helps to make the cask wood more comfortable to sit on.

Each chair is also interlaced with thick metal chains at each corner so it can be hung like a mobile swing.
