New York is no stranger to the beauty of the hybrid (it is home to the cronnut after all), and nothing pleases us more than seeing this approach applied to great design. Three student’s at India’s MIT Institute of Design have brought us exactly that with their innovative concept that combines a rocking chair with a hammock. This simple yet brilliant design replaces the traditional side-to-side swing of a hammock with the forward and backward motion synonymous with the rocking chair.
Harshita Murudkar, Shivani Gulati and Mehak Philip were given the assignment to design and create a furniture prototype in just two weeks. After deciding on their rocking chair-hammock idea, they began to build the frame from metal and researched different weaving methods they could use for the seat.
