Rocking Chair, Terracotta
Designer Takeshi Nii created his masterpiece, the pioneering Ny Chair, in 1970, and its pleasingly utilitarian design is still beloved by many the world over. Carefully calculated seat and armrest heights, the backrest angle, and the fabric characteristics all work together to produce a cocoon-like feel for superior comfort. Lightweight at 14.5 pounds, the chair measures a mere 6 inches when folded for easy transport and storage. The seat is made of Kurashiki canvas, a durable, finely-textured, woven cotton yarn, and is removable and replaceable.
Well known since the 1970s for his modern furniture design, especially folding chairs and tables, Takeshi Nii’s most famous creation is the Nychair X. Along with making furniture designs, he was also the third generation owner of a company that manufactures Kendo equipment. His Nychair X product is a permanent collection in New York’s MoMA.
