There aren’t a lot of designers who invest their time in creating a rocking chair.‎ Most creators overlook it, labeling it is quirky and redundant.‎ Hannes thinks exactly the opposite.‎ “I’ve always been intrigued by rocking chairs”, he says.‎ “I used to have one here at home, near the fire place: a kid’s version where I hardly fitted in.‎ I would sit in it a lot.‎ I don’t know why, I guess the swinging movement of it reminds me of my childhood.‎ Apart from that, I also enjoy leaning on two legs when sitting on a regular chair”.‎
Thus, a rocking chair had to be made, which they did after they created their first seats in 2012.‎ In that year Muller Van Severen was appointed a solo exhibition at Interieur Kortrijk called Future Primitives.‎ “It was the first big show of our designs”, Fien remembers.‎ “We had sixty square meters to fill but no furniture to sit on.‎ We were urged to design some.‎ ”
Under small pressure of the solo show, Fien and Hannes made their iconic seats with a leather cloth spanned between two horizontal bars.‎ After that, they designed the rocking chair which is constructed by the same principal.‎ Just as with all Muller Van Severen’s designs, transparency is key.‎ And so it swings through the space of the interior without ever covering the background.‎

Available in a bleak leather that turns dark-brown over the years with a green frame, or in 3 different color options with a fabric in 100% linen.‎

Rocking chair: Seat frame in steel rod.‎ Powder coated seat frame.‎

Leather seat: 100% natural leather, tanned in traditional methods to maintain its natural colour and soft feel.‎ Over time the leather will acquire a patina and may also darken due to UV-ligth.‎
