Interesting Nursery Rocker

by in Baby Nursery Ideas, Cool Stuff

This unusual and very expensive rocker has an interesting story behind it which makes it a special piece for the designer.

The rocking chair is a touching tribute by industrial designer Patrick Messier to Sophie Fournier, his partner in life and business, who has given birth to their first child in February 2005.

When Sophie announced that she was pregnant, she said, “We’ll have to buy a rocking chair.” After looking in vain for a rocking chair that met all their criteria for good looks and comfort, Patrick decided to create one for Sophie.

It is like a ribbon suspended in space, made from a single piece of fiberglass, curves designed on a grid based on the Fibonacci sequence, has a special high gloss urethane finish and is limited edition.

The company needs 8 to 12 weeks lead time to produce the piece and it will set you back $6000.00.
