bodice rocker by splinterworks stands vertical when not in use

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.

  • weebles wobble but they don’t fall down – so it’s not a rocker after all -“classy” form too so can i order this from a sky mall catalog? does hugh hefner own one of these?

  • As a customer you expect and you want to lay down on this chair in mid air. That would be spectecular but is not the case. This is nothing but antropomorphic b… s… with a fat end to hold some counter weight so you can park it?

  • A sculpture by day and chair by night..
