Ny Rocking Chair

ny rocking chair

Takeshi Nii designed the Ny Rocking Chair and Ottoman after he was inspired by an advertisement for a director’s chair in an old magazine from the 30’s. He utilized the same concept, a simple folding frame wrapped with durable canvas, and then he designed Ny to be a lounge chair. At only 14.5 lbs, the Ny folds into a compact 5.5″ form that can become nearly invisible, or be picked up and moved around wherever an extra chair is needed. A fundamentally important design, The Ny Rocking Chair is in the permanent collection at MoMA.
