A balancing act on two narrow skids, the Fedro for German outdoor furniture company Dedon, is a colorful woven low rocker designed by Milanese fashion, textile, and accessories designer Lorenza Bozzoli, who named it after her son who’d balance himself in front of the TV playing video games on the seat of an old chair without legs.
Fedro, which marks Bozzoli’s debut into the home furniture sector, is a perky ergonomic design that allows one to rock back and forth, using one’s feet and legs to control the movement.
With a cushion for your head, Fedro looks pretty comfy. Lightweight and portable, the chair comes with a handle at the back for easy transporting, making it mobile enough to go anywhere the feeling moves you.
The chair’s birdlike form inspired its three color schemes, all based on tropical Latin American birds: the Flamingo, Colibrí and Quetzal. And since Fedro is stackable, you pile just them up on top of each other when you’re done rockin’.
