Designer Takeshi Nii named the "NY Chair" after his family name Nii, and also the Danish word for "new" or "fresh". The designer's passion for chairs began when he saw a director's chair in a magazine before WWII. While repeating tests for functional chairs, Nii saw a beautiful chair with a fabric seat from Denmark. Inspired by these chairs, Nii produced the folding chair and its companion pieces.
This rocking chair version of the stylish chair boasts the same wooden armrests and compact folding options. A rocker you can pack away or take along - genius!
Designer Takeshi Nii's policy is to produce functional and reasonable chairs for daily use. Easily folded and tucked away for storage then pulled and moved to one place or many for use, the NY Rocking Chair meets these design principles splendidly.
Material(s): 100% cotton, beech wood and steel piping

Perfect design of simplicity and comfort

The NY rocking chair is a beautiful and functional chair. It is small scale, portable, practical, comfortable, well made, and aesthetically and simply designed. Pure genius. We have owned ours for about ten years now, and it is the chair everyone, both family and friends, choose to sit in first. As a fan of contemporary design, this chair has great appeal. Countless guests to our home have asked about this chair and after sitting in decided to buy one.
