My ideation for this project surrounded the idea of momentary relaxation. I wanted to create a design that encouraged the user to rest by controlling the ability to rock back and forth. The design I pursued was a stepped rocker. The user wouldn't be able to rock in the chair unless they were fully relaxed, moving their center of gravity to the chair back and engaging the rockers.
Iterations of scale models led me to the shape of the final form.
After assembly was complete, the Townsend Rocker was ready for photography.
Thanks for stopping by!
