Iconic Cloud Chair Rocking Chair by Pia Weinberg – Maison Deux
The Iconic Cloud, part of a series or rockers (i.e. cloud, moon and watermelon) is the kick-off for designing a home & living for kids and parents alike. A world where two generations can live in harmony, rather than both have their own specific products that are totally out of style and use. In this case it should mix style, shape and materials in such a way that both grown-ups and kids enjoy using them. The solution is a design, made from solid oak and wool that will last for generations.
