Gaivota Rocking Chair


Why We Love It

During a stay in the French Alps, Renaud Bonzon sat down in a bank of snow and felt intensely comfortable. He liked this sensation so much, he designed the Gaivota Rocking Chair to conform to the contours of the snow bank, and instill the same lofty effect of sitting on top of snow. Combining beauty and ergonomics, this chair is emblematic of great Brazilian design.
