Instant Rocking Chair!


The Outdoor Bascule rocks. No, I mean it physically rocks! Designed cleverly to turn any flat surface into an immediate rocking chair, the Outdoor Bascule relies on a curved seat to give the chair its rocking action. It turns areas that aren’t conducive to sitting into perfect sitting spots with the added advantage of being able to rock back and forth. Now who doesn’t love that?

Unlike most rocking chairs (or even regular chairs), the Outdoor Bascule is portable and easily transportable. The two armrests are easy to flat-pack and carry, while the chair element itself is stackable, making logistics rather easy. Once you’re at the park, or on your balcony, just fix the armrests to the chair and you have yourself a chair with a backrest that rocks gently without tipping over, just making that evening a delight.

The Bascule (french for see-saw) was built with new parents in mind. Allowing them to rock back and forth with their children, the Outdoor Bascule becomes an interactive element in the playing-time between parents and their infants. However, the Bascule is ideal for all sorts of uses. Wouldn’t you be tempted to carry that to the nearest park and rock gently back and forth while flipping through a book, or crack open a bottle of chardonnay and rock away, being kissed by the sun, listening to soft jazz?
