The Ribbon rocking chair is a contemporary rocking chair in ash or walnut, leather and stainless steel. Inspired by a sculpture by Naum Gabo, the backrest, armrests and runners are made from one continuous piece creating a single fluid form that is light, both visually and physically. It consists of three main component parts: the laminated wood ‘ribbon’; the leather covered plywood seat shell and the stainless steel rod framework which work together resulting in a rigid structure of great strength.

“The Ribbon Rocking Chair is actually extraordinary and very memorable - a classic of our time Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs

“It is so difficult to create a truly original chair: the minimalist, sculptural and beautifully balanced Ribbon Rocking Chair is a stunning re-invention of the traditional rocking chair and an inspired combination of craft values with sleek contemporary design”. Janet Boston, Manchester Art Gallery

“knowing what is possible yet pushing the boundaries of production can result in a simplicity that is greater than the sum of its parts - this award winning chair is wooden poetry Allen Boothroyd, Meridian Audio

“It is a revolution in rocking chairs - one seamless ribbon of timber from which the seat is slung. How will anyone ever do better? Rocking chair design come of age! Jon Snow
