Rocking Swing by Clara Rivière & Tobias Nickerl

Clara Rivière and Tobias Nickerl took a look at both the rocking chair and the swing and cleverly combined the two into one, fun design – the Rocking Swing. The goal? To bring the childhood pleasure of swinging, together with the stereotypical grandparent rocking chair, and creating intergenerational fun.


The hybrid swing/rocking chair performs double movements – you can rock, you can swing, or you can do them both at the same time.


The light green frame holds the leather seat via bright orange ropes in this indoor/outdoor design.
