According to Richard Clarkson, who appears to be one of the designers “We have called our rocking chair “cradle” as is epitomises what the chair is all about. It is about creating a safe, comfortable and relaxing enviroment in which the user can dissipate the overstimulation of their senses. The design was heavily directed by a synthesis of research into Autisim and children with Rythmic Movement Disorder (RMD) as well as saftey, sustainability, function and aesthetics. The chair adheares to the concept “if you design for the extremes and the middle will sort itself out,” while we had a stong focus creating a solution for sufferers of RMD the chair is not exclusively for them and will bring relaxation, comfort and calmness to homes with this desirable chair.
The chair references Ikea funiture ideaology and is designed to be a flatpack; minimising packaging and transportation waste. Cradle is manufactured from reusable and environmentally friendly raw materials including the glue used to form the intial plywood layers.
