Mamma Rocker

Montreal designer Patrick Messier created this fibreglass rocker, and won honors in the 2006 Best of Canada Design Competition.

"Made from a single piece of injected fibreglass with a high-gloss urethane finish, the chair evokes a ribbon suspended in space... Mamma’s comfortable shape was actually derived from a grid based on the Fibonacci series, a sequence in which each term is the sum of its two predecessors (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc.), as found in nature (petals in a sunflower, spirals in a pinecone)..."
