Manufactured in white, lacquered birch or natural, lacquered ash, the rockers slot onto the chair's legs without any fixings.

For several years, I have been an owner and user of the "seven chair” by Arne Jacobsen / Fritz Hansen. I use this chair every day as my working chair. I prefer this one to any ordinary high-tech office chairs. I also believe it looks much better in my home environment.

Unfortunately the sitting height is a little bit too low for an office chair. Therefore, I would like to present my solution to this problem. My idea is to add metal pipe legs to the original chair. Apart from obtaining a perfect height, different ways of sitting will be possible - to sit in different angles helps to reduce monotonous pressure on your body.

I believe this new working/rocking chair would be a nice alternative office chair, possible to use in offices as well as private homes, cafés, restaurants, public libraries etc.

The rocking parts are packaged in a small box, easy to buy and attach to the original ”seven chair” without any tools.
