AB001 Rocking Nest Chair

Designer: Anker Bak

The AB001 Rocking Nest Chair is the result of Carl Hansen & Søn’s collaboration with designer Anker Bak. Created with beautiful materials, this rocking chair reimagines an age-old concept for modern living by offering the ultimate in crafted comfort. Anker Bak’s AB001 Rocking Nest Chair was borne out of a real human need. Bak conceived the innovative design when his sister needed a comfortable place to relax with her newborn baby, creating a unique form with exceptional functionality. Dynamic in its expression and clear in its construction, the seemingly floating rocking chair unites many elements and materials, turning them into a welcoming, organic silhouette. For Bak, who is fond of nomadic living and fascinated by society’s ever-changing needs, the chair also needed to be flexible and meet the constraints of urban spaces. To this end, the Rocking Nest Chair has a mechanism that makes it easy to fold the chair flat with just a few steps. The Rocking Nest Chair represents minimalism and craftsmanship at their best. It reinterprets the Danish design heritage for modern interiors – while also highlighting the potential of Bak’s chosen materials.
