An eye-catching, almost futuristic interpretation of the classic rocking chair. A modern, dynamic piece of furniture built for comfort and which accommodates a variety of sitting positions. The shape of the rocking chair was partially inspired by a shell. This gives it a beautiful, organic design which is raw on the outside but smooth and refined on the inside. A piece of beautiful furniture that provides a unique experience of inner tranquility. Thomas Pedersen’s unusual rocking chair derives from the stingray. The Danish word for stingray is “rokke” which sounds like the first part of the word “rock” in “rocking chair” and the shell does resemble a giant stingray moving across the seabed…but it was the functionality that came first, not the design. The new version of Stingray is available in oak, walnut and the African wood makassar, whose grain beautifully accentuates the chair’s organic contours – inspired by the sea. The veneer version of the Stingray rocker was created as an innovative reworking of Thomas Pedersen´s earlier Stingray in plastic. Produced by Fredericia Furniture.
