The rocking chair as a phenomenon for the arcades
by Annette Tietenberg | 11/15/2011
Ever since Thomas Pedersens's modern interpretation of the rocking chair - Stingray - introduced in plastic in 2002, this young designer has been playing with the idea of creating the curved chair in veneer. This has now been achieved. The chair is availa
ble, for example, in African macassar wood, whose grains emphasize the organic shape of the Stingray, shaped with the sea as a source of inspiration.
I got inspired by the rocking motion of the Stingray when passing through the water. The movement of
the chair reminds me of lying and rocking in the waves at the edge of the water on the beach," says the designer of the chair, Thomas Pedersen.
This new version of the Stingray is also available with a cushion that invites to even more hours of
relaxing cosiness. As a result of the curves of this chair, the cushion consists of several pieces. Also here, the inspiration from the sea is evident.
"The needlework resembles the motion of the waves and highlights the dynamics of this chair.
Thanks to the simple design, the chair manages the asymmetric needlework without problem. It enhances the organic shape of the chair," says Thomas Pedersen.
Presented in veneer and with the comfortable cushion, the Stingray has a completely new
appearance that opens up more possibilities for a modern, yet relaxed interior.
