STINGRAY | Rocking armchair
The Stingray was designed by Thomas Pedersen in 2002 as a modern interpretation of the classic rocking chair. The generous shape of the shell offers a variety of sitting positions.
Pedersen is often inspired by organic shapes found in nature, and found the flowing shape of the stingray fish the perfect muse for the shape and name, Stingray. The story behind Stingray begins In 2002, when Thomas Pedersen was completing his final project to qualify as an architect. He selected a rather untraditional item – a rocking chair in fibreglass and steel. Although the Aarhus School of Architecture has an extremely well-equipped timber workshop, his choice of materials posed problems as it has no facilities for his chosen materials.
Stingray is available with a shell of plastic or fully upholstered in fabric or leather. The plastic version is in black or white. Both versions are available with chrome, black or white painted steel or stainless steel frame. The stainless steel frame makes it possible to place Stingray outdoors.

STINGRAY - The shape of the rocking chair was partially inspired by a shell. This gives it a beautiful organic design which is raw on the outside but smooth and refined on the inside. A piece of furniture that provides a unique experience of inner tranquillity. The steel frame has been constructed without any transverse lines thus accentuating the floating appearance of the chair. The chair as it appears today gradually evolved through a process of models, mock-ups and prototypes made by hand from fibreglass. Stingray was originally launched with a vacuum-moulded plastic shell, but today it is also available in innovative 3D veneer, as well as fully upholstered in fabric or leather or with an upholstered topside.
