Atmos Rocker – upcycled seat belts


rocker500_1.jpg

This nicely ‘green’ rocker is based on classic Shaker design. The Atmos Rocker is constructed of sustainably sourced, ply bent wood to reduce waste, and features a seating area made from upcycled surplus seat belts.

A contrasting color is used to accentuate the joints and the extended front leg discourages out of control rocking (you know who you are).  Designed for work or play.

The belts come in red, black, silver, moss or saddle tan and the wood finish in light oak, ebony or mahogany.
