Shell Rocking chair
The rocking chair is most commonly associated with the large wooden bentwood variety made famous by Thonet and our chair was intended to be very different – compact, colourful and made of steel rod. The chair is made from two thicknesses of steel rod – a very thin steel 4mm rod to make the seat shell, and the framework and legs from an 18mm rod. It sits perfectly in an urban garden on the timber decking in a variety of colourful and metallic epoxy paint finishes.
