The concept for the rocking chair is a touching tribute by industrial designer Patrick Messier to Sophie Fournier, his partner in life and business, for the birth of their first child.
When Sophie announced that she was pregnant, she said, We'll have to buy a rocking chair. After looking in vain for a rocking chair that met all their criteria for good looks and comfort, Patrick decided to create one for Sophie.
Like a ribbon suspended in space, the MAMMA rocking chair is made from a single piece of fibreglass, with a special high-gloss urethane finish. MAMMA's curves, designed on a grid based on the Fibonacci sequence, are incredibly comfortable.
