DESCRIPTION
A fantastic and extremely rare teak rocking chair designed by sigvard bernadotte in the early 1950`s, this model is dated from the early 1970s. A wonderful shape more reminiscent of his silver work than a chair, beautifully sculptured. A warm glowing teak and original hop sack all in good condition.

Sigvard Bernadotte was the second child of the Swedish Crown Prince Gustav Adolf (later King Gustav VI Adolf of Sweden) and brother to Queen Ingrid of Denmark. From 1929 Sigvard Bernadotte studied at the Decorative School at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm. He assisted in creating and installing the epoch-making Stockholm Exhibition introducing Functionalism in Scandinavia in 1930. This new approach to design and architecture - the concept of form being determined by function - had a profound effect on the young Bernadotte and influenced his future design career as one of the leading industrial designers in Scandinavia including being one of the prominent silver designers of the Danish company Georg Jensen. Sigvard Bernadotte was only 23 years old when he began designing silver for Georg Jensen and already at this young age it was evident that he had an original talent.
