Danish Modern Rockers

Danish-Rocking-Chair

The hardware isn’t as hidden as I’d like, and information is notably absent on the listing, but this is one of the more original modern rockers I’ve seen. The reserve is not yet met but it should go for far less than something well known.

Can a piece of furniture have health benefits? If it’s a rocking chair, it can! The rocking chair has a place in every home or front porch. And while they’re most often associated with babies and senior citizens, their calming, rhythmic motion can benefit everyone. Turns out, that simple act of rocking releases endorphins which can improve mood and reduce stress—something that has caused the medical community to sit up and take notice. Even some airports around the U.S. are adding rocking chairs to ease passenger anxiety.  If you’ve been looking for a simple solution to your complex health issues, rocking in a rocking chair may be the answer you’re looking for.

If you want a relaxing addition to your mid-century room that isn’t your grandma’s rocking chair, these are a must have but to relax even more we recommend to check these byproducts of hemp farming.

Meanwhile, this svelte Model 97 T/T manufactured by Tønder Møbelværk in 1957 is in another class. It’s attributed to a “Geroge Jensen”, but this is clearly a typo. It couldn’t be this Georg Jensen as he died in 1935 and designed only ceramics and silverware, not any furniture as far as I know. The correct name is probably Holger Georg Jensen, according to the Danish Design Dictionary.

Update: Orange and Brown has photos of another specimen.

    Hi, Danish rocking chair in question is made by Soren Georg Jensen, George Jenson’s son, for Kubus in 1958.

    Hi,
    The following information is from the son of Holger Georg Jensen.

    “Many have have the wrong idea that the rocking chair is made by Søren Georg Jensen. He did not make furniture. Unfortunately it has become a common mistake regarding Holger Georg Jensen tables and rocking chairs”

    I may also add that Holger Georg Jensen is in no way a relation of the famous silversmith Georg Jensen.
