conceived by canadian designer tom chung, ‘cleat’ is a knockdown rocking chair influenced by the harbours
surrounding both vancouver, canada and stockholm, sweden. the first prototype was built while studying abroad
with the intention to bring it home in a carry on luggage. the refined production version is constructed from a solid
slab of birch, where the wooden chair components are held together with zero stretch climbing rope for stability.
