The Concrete HAUTEVILLE Rocking Chair designed by Henri Lavallard Boget for Lyon Béton, draws inspiration from iconic mid-century design with a modern twist. Constructed with a concrete shell, rebar legs and plywood runners, the concrete chair’s composition brings to light the unique qualities of industrial materials and repurposes the unpolished, raw materials to create a minimal and contemporary chair. Despite the use of unconventional materials, the concrete rocking chair has an incredibly ergonomic and comfortable seat, while ultra-fine sanding gives it a smooth finish. Versatile enough for practically any space, this minimalist design will leave an impression everywhere it goes.
