Where form meets function

Designed by Alberto Sanchez for Mut Design, the Enea Rocking Chair combines traditional Spanish handcraft with a contemporary wooden base to form a simple, functional rocking side chair. The woven seat, done in black, offers solid contrast to the seat rails and stiles, balancing the form. The proportion of the base to seat adds further to the stance, which could easily have appeared overly cumbersome. Not quite as delicate as other Mut work (notably the Leaf collection), the weight of Enea Rocking Chair makes it more successful than other product from the firm.
