Here to smooth out overly rigid modern living decors is the Comback Rocking Chair from Kartell. This rocking chair applies design cues from classic Windsor comb-back chairs and other rocking chair designs from 18th-century England — but with a modern twist. The frame of this rocking chair is crafted from wood and molded plastic. This innovative rocking chair features a backrest consisting of seven “teeth,” which spread out to support the user’s lumbar region. A reinforced hexagonal rim meets the backrest to provide structural support. Slim shafts radiate downward to join the saddle-shaped seat, completing the design aesthetic of this exquisitely modern rocking chair.
Kartell has been a leader in modern Italian design for decades, and their collection is recognizable for its colors, shapes and playfulness. And, of course, for its predominant material: plastic. Kartell has developed many advancements in plastics, including improved transparency, softness, flexibility and durability. From the Bourgie lamps to the Masters collection, Kartell succeeds with a little irony and a lot of innovation.
