Modernist collapsible rocking chair created by Japanese designer Takeshi Nii in the 1950s. The chair’s construction was meant to reflect modern Danish design and its simplicity and functionality, and its structure and collapsibility were inspired by the classic director’s chair. Nii’s later designs for collapsible furniture won numerous awards and were selected for the permanent collection at MoMA in 1970. This chair has an aluminum frame with armrests and rockers made from solid beech with a light finish, and the seat and back are made from a dark red faux leather. The rocking chair has a special folding mechanism that makes it easy to move and store.
