Atlantic & Runner
"Nana" by Alegre Design
Spanish agency Alegre Design has redesigned a rocking chair traditionally used by new mothers to breastfeed and lull their babies to sleep.
The wooden seat extends up to create a frame for the backrest with a hollow centre. This form is upholstered in the breathable fabric "Runner", and the opening in the structure allows the textile to adapt to the sitter's body weight, with the intention of making it more comfortable for extended use. Reinforced cushions upholstered with "Atlantic" provide additional support.
The studio chose the combination of white fabric and wood as a reference to the Scandinavian aesthetic that is popular with contemporary consumers.
