John Briscella New Age Rocking Chairs

Philadelphia-based designer has created an interesting new style of seating. The Calibration stool and lounge chair are like your favorite rocking chairs in 3D! At first glance the chairs look like they were styled after a porcupine. But the number of spikes or legs in this case are designed to support movement in any direction. So instead of simply rocking back and forth, the user can adjust his seat from side to side or at an angle to rest at the perfect position. Seat portion is flexible enough so that the furniture is not rigid.

Briscella, who is also an architect and urban planner, lists himself as an urbanist and works on projects that communicate new spacial concepts for cities by introducing simple ideas into everyday life and surroundings. From the smallest iterations, to Large-scale Urban Compositions, the works respond to experiencing environments in their contextual relationship to the observer.

The designer work appears all over the world from Austria to India to the United States. Briscella’s other home products include a line of clocks and an outdoor, barrel-shaped firepit.
