NYchair X Rocker


Designed by Takeshi Nii in the late 1950's this beautifully simple rocking chair is perfect for any modern room with minimal, yet high design. Takeshi Nii named the “NY Chair” after 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. which served as further Inspiration for this chair, Nii produced this folding chair in 1958, soon after, it won numerous awards and later became a permanent feature at MOMA in 1970.
