‘bodice rocker’ by splinterworks

when positioned vertically, the ‘bodice rocker’ by london-based design studio splinterworks takes on an anthropomorphic sculptural form. some viewers may perceive a bust, or derrière, but among the suggestive curvaceous forms, others might see an arched foot. with a light touch, it gently rocks back and pauses in mid-air, as if weightless, inciting a double-take by seeming to defy the pull of gravity. in this position, it reveals the more familiar profile of a chaise lounge — with a second nudge, it draws to the ground, where you can sit and stretch out comfortably on soft padded leather. the rocker can be modified for a more ergonomic fit to accommodate a taller or smaller person, and scaled appropriately to suit different room size.
