Standard Rocking Chair by &Larry

This unusual rocking chair “Standard Rocking Chair” was designed by &larry in cooperation with The Asylum and shown at Singapore Design Festival 2007.

&larry is a graphic and advertising designer from Singapore.
Objects is a long term project where he is using common Singaporean materials to march backwards into the future (borrowed from marshall mcluhan).

&Larry about the Standard Rocking Chair:

Inspired by Jean ProuvĂ©’s Standard Chair, our assignment was transformed into a rocking chair. Totally hand-made in the studio, this chair has been nicknamed “The Rabbit” by visitors for its long handles that can be grabbed by the sitter to balance the rocking motion.

It was a satisfying project and it whetted our appetites to create more items that would eventually become part of our Objects collection.

Scott Morrison: The Master of the Rocking Chair

Rocker cum Craddle
Rocking Chair with Craddle

Luxist drew my eye to Scott Morrison, the master of the Rocking Chair.


Here I updated a 1700’s style Windsor Nanny Rocker using Sam Maloof’s Classic Rocking Chair design as a basis. I wanted to add interest by creating different shapes for the cradle’s base and its rail. That is, the rail follows the shape of the base (as seen from above) as well as having a shape of its own moving up and down (as seen from the front). A unique side-effect and challenge of this design would then be to create spindles that would connect the asymmetrical shapes of the base and the rail.

The spindles must therefore be duplicated in a uniform manner along the cradle base, while also being dynamically sized to accommodate the bi-directional flow of the rail.
