Foldable rocking chair

Anker Bak, a Copenhagen based designer, has made a rocking chair that is foldable. The chair is made from traditional materials with a minimalistic approach.

He has used soft, stitched leather and canvas for the oval shell while steel struts are joined together with the solid wood framework. This design allows the chair to be folded away. This makes it perfect for a smaller home.

The combination of steel and wood creates an impression of the chair being light while the leather makes it soft.

Bak has a background in carpentry and cabinetmaking which has led him to work with furniture design. While developing this chair (Rocking Nest Chair) he wanted to create a meditative place for his sister to relax in with her newborn baby.
