Sunday Chair: Furniture Design
Comfort is far more than an ergonomic fit, it’s a sense felt around the entire body. The dimensions of comfort and wellbeing can be activated by rocking, having a surprisingly vital impact on the user’s well-being. In just one welcoming form of furniture, rocking provides some of the key conditions for people to unwind, destress and be engaged in a positive headspace. Facilitating a sense of informality and relaxation, the Sunday Chair is everything that a modern rocking chair should be; fresh and contemporary while retaining the most critical elements needed to communicate a sense of warmth. The Sunday Chair provides a new catalyst for comfort and a meaningful destination for unwinding.
