Pelicano rocking chair by Michel Arnoult
Michel Arnoult's Pelicano rocking chair has been around for a few years but looks a lot older than it actually is. It was actually designed in 2003 but draws heavily on the Arnoult's design background. Although he was French, he spent much his time in Brazil and believed strongly in the democratisation of design. In the 1950s, he was one of the first in Brazil to produce Ready-To-Assemble furniture (leaving millions of flatpacks to follow in his wake).
