As Brazilian architects, we were extremely excited to take on the challenge of designing public furniture. At its core, the concept of the U Rock Chair is a contemporary take on the way we experience public spaces, where different users coexist in a rich, colorful, and peaceful fashion. U Rock complements this way of thinking, generating a lasting emotional connection with its users, inviting them to come back, move around a bit, and keep rocking. The most important description of this chair is “moveable.” You can choose to sit straight in a comfortable and beautiful chair, or flip it over to rock out in a new interpretation of the classic rocking chair. Light, stackable, and easy to carry, it is design-friendly for all ages. The chair is made from recycled PET bottles that are collected in speciallyidentified containers in Battery Park in New York City. The park visitors are directly responsible for their future seats through a connection with design and recycling processes. This creates an emotional bond between U Rock and its users even before production, increasing the feeling that the chairs belong to everyone.
