Rock Chair
& Rock Seat

Designed by Fredrik Färg


Being rocked as a means of relaxation or comfort is a timeless, basic human experience. Though at some time in the early 20th century the design development of the rocking chair stopped. Rocking chairs frequently remain in an ornate, salon mode. Fredrik Färg's Rock Chair is a rocking chair for our own time. It continues the traditional rocking chair's comforting function but in a modern design.
“I developed the prototype during an exchange term in Australia where I was given an assignment to created a chair using only MDF board and a jig saw. It was a challenge to produce something personal and coherent using the simplest means.“
Rock Chair is a knock-down design sold in a flat pack. The five pieces are easy to fit together. When the chair has been assembled, the construction is its expressive feature. Nothing is hidden and one can see how the chair holds together. There is a toy-like charm to its simplicity. As a model, Rock Chair is like a drawing that one can sit on, as beautiful as it is cleverly functional.
Rocking chairs encourage one to sit for a long time. While working on the Rock Chair Fredrik also had the idea of producing soft cushions for it. The round cushions are a graphically elegant addition to the generous forms of the rocking chair and make it comfortable. Rock Seat comes in two variants, one in leather and one in cotton canvas. The idea is that the cushions should last for a long time and gain a more beautiful patina with the passing of the years.
