Designer Hongtao Zhou wants to allow everyone to have their own customised rocking experience. Hongato Zhou is a Ph.D Candidate in Furniture Design and Manufacturing in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. With this clever design the chair back and seat can be quickly and easily adjusted to suit the user, so everyone can customize the chair to their preferred “angle of rock”. The designer uses the efficiency of CNC machining to create the complex pieces perfectly every time.
The design is comprised of six piece of sustainably sourced birch plywood that slot together without the need for any adhesives. The ellipses set the design off and give the chair its modern edge; they also look like they are robust enough for some serious rocking fun.
