The idea behind GRÖNADAL rocking chair was to make a rocking chair that joins different materials and expressions in unexpected ways. Rattan and ash are vibrant natural materials that age beautifully, and create an interesting contrast to the powder-coated steel. The seat and back are hand-woven using traditional techniques, while the light shape brings modern Scandinavian design to mind.
"I was thrilled by the invitation form IKEA to design a new rattan rocking chair. The project involved travelling to Vietnam to learn about this beautiful natural material and how it is crafted by hand. Every part is made with love and care – which I hope you’ll feel when using Grönadal."
