Buchbeschreibung Milano Silvana 2006, 2006. Softcover, 235 x 300mm., 112pp., profoundly colour illustrated. ISBN 8836606717. The rocking-chair is not only a widely-used item of furnishing in late 19th century European homes, it is also a symbolic object on which we move while always returning to our point of departure that recalls for us the warm movement of our mother's arms, our first nights in the cradle and our battles on gallopping, many-coloured rocking-horses. The rocking-chair - at first a simple chair or armchair with rockers added - reached Europe from the United States, where Benjamin Franklin has been claimed as the inventor. Michael Thonet, a pioneer of modern design, and the producer of classic Viennese chairs, exhibited the first model of a rocking-chair made of steam-bent beechwood at the London Exhibition of 1862. It was a success: at first a heavy, expensive object, used mainly by the elderly and sick, it became a pure oscillating line, light in its weight and forms, conceived for domestic apartments: the Thoenet rocking-chair - produced in several models - is fascinating to men, women and children and represents - in painting - a serene point of arrival, gentle and romantic, in which to relax the body and mind.
