Rocking chairs have long been a solo affair. If you wanted to partake with a fellow sitter you had to resort to a hammock, which is hardly practical on a cold winter’s day. But, not any more.
The Sway chair is a double-wide rocking chair by Markus Krauss. The frame is crafted from steel, while the seating area is padded for added comfort. But there is more than meets the eye with this hip piece of furniture. Hidden in the frame is a telescoping arm. Extend it and the rocking chair converts into a fixed chair, otherwise known as a love seat – after all it is designed for two. The Sway chair can also be configured such that the occupants can sit in the same direction, opposite one and other, or used as one large seat for one lazy person. It looks like the angle of the chair can also be adjusted such that you can be propped up for reading or laid flat for a nap.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a price and we can only assume that the Sway Rocking Chair is purely a concept.
