Chair #326

—Designed by Thomas Pederson

Young Danish designer Thomas Pederson really captured the look of a stingray gliding through the ocean with his Stingray chair. Doesn't it look relaxing? I have swam with them in the Cayman Islands, and it's very relaxing to watch. I even held a stingray. For the record, they are soft—like picking up a big piece of slippery Jello. The shape of the rocking chair was partially inspired by a shell. This gives it a beautiful organic design which is raw on the outside but smooth and refined on the inside. The chair provides a unique experience of inner tranquillity. The steel frame has been constructed without any transverse lines therefore accentuating the floating appearance of the chair.
