mid-century inspiration - mod chair

that's the 'stingray' rocking chair. mid-century mod design - 'eames' inspired. it really reminds me of the 'eames molded plastic rocker' (1948).
there is a plastic version, a veneer version, and a upholstered version of the 'stingray' chair.

:: the 'stingray' rocking chair resembles gentle sea waves. its appearance is an interesting new interpretation of the plastic version of the curved chair created in 2002 as it is now manufactured in veneer. the chair is available, for example, in african macassar ebony wood, whose grains emphasise the organic form of the stingray, whose shape was inspired by the sea. the new version of the 'stingray' is also available with a cushion that invites to extend the hours of comfortable relaxation. due to the curves of this chair the cushion is made of several pieces. here, as well, the inspiration from the sea is evident. the veneer and the comfortable cushion lend the 'stingray' a trendy look establishing new possibilities for a modern, yet cosy interior. ::

i would love to have the black plastic version! nature-inspired and still very simple...
