A Rocking Horse With Roots by David Schellander & Stefanie Richtsfeld

Sitting itself is kinda boring, but design shouldn’t be… it should be fun! That’s the philosophy behind this modern interpretation of the classic Panton chair. To preserving the timeless character of the chair, the designers have avoided decorating it arbitrarily. The chair becomes an integral part of the design, as it would have been intended as a rocking horse by Panton in 1959. Original materials of the chair combined with locally grown wood, (in contrast to the dark fabric & metal) communicate elegance & lightness.
