More than a seat, yet not really a rocking chair, O. is an icon with an identity of its own.
Marcel Wanders’ latest design is fit for a rock star. The giant, O-shaped seat is as wide and tall as a person, and cushioned all the way round in a variety of elegant, matching colours. It’s not really a rocking chair, but when you take a seat it takes on a rhythmic movement that encourages you to relax and your mind to wander. O. is a masterpiece of creative thinking and pure funfair.
