Leather Rocking Chair by Takeshi Nii, 1950s
This modern rocking chair was designed by Takeshi Nii during the 1950s. It has a black real leather upholstered and aluminium frame on wooden sledges. It is the brother of the famous NY Chair. Designer Takeshi Nii named the “NY Chair” after his family name Nii, and also the Danish word for “new” or “fresh”. The designer’s passion for chairs began when he saw a director’s chair in a magazine before WWII. While repeating tests for functional chairs, Nii saw a beautiful chair with a fabric seat from Denmark. Inspired by these chairs, Nii produced this folding chair (designed in 1958) which won numerous awards and later became a permanent feature at MOMA in 1970.
