Stingray rocking chair:



Why is it that most rockers are ugly, wooden monstrosities? And why does the only modern option seems to be the fiberglass Eames RAR rocker, which I'm not only tired of seeing but I'm also not entralled by. Solution? The new Stingray ("rokke" in Danish) chair from Danish design company Fredericia Furniture. It was designed as a final project at architecture school by Thomas Pedersen.
It's made of black or white high-quality molded plastic.

I like it quite a lot but it's no Nurseryworks.

I know. It's cooler than the Nurseryworks one. It looks like my sting ray friend from Grand Cayman.

That stingry who creeped me out so much I had to climb your body like a tree to get away from him, you mean?

Wes said...

That's the one. I'm sure if you had longer to get used to him, you would have thought he was kind of cute. I did.

Wes, I thought you might enjoy the blog I stumbled across Nasty, Brutalist, and Short.

Lovely chair by the way (although I must say I fear I'd break it as soon as I plunked my fat bum in it).

Wes said...

Weasel, I've seen said bum and it would definitely not break a chair.
Loved the blog— I think he stole my format.

I broke a lawn chair that was serving as a car seat in the back of a minivan in Cherokee, NC once.

But thank you.
