The Rocking Chair That Would Not Rock

This chair is a concept that artist Cory Barkman has been working on. While the appearance of the chair gives an impression that it would be a rocking chair with an unstable base, it actually is a fixed chair that has been secured properly to a 3/8-inch steel base plate. The seat itself has been covered in Brazilian cow hide, while the back of the chair and the pillow wear leather.

Cory plans to make the chair available in the same industrial look that it is in, where we assume it would go very well with the Industrial Revolution table we’ve seen from the artist earlier. If sleek suits your taste better, the future will also see a rivet-less, nickel finished chair with smoother leather finish.

[Thanks, Cory]
