In 1960, Professor YrjąŹ Kukkapuro, the Finnish designer and academic, introduced what would become one of his most famous works: the Moderno rocker. It was the centerpiece of a clean, unassuming, ergonomic, and classically Scandinavian line of chairs that were produced by a firm called Lepo.
Last year, after a long hiatus, Lepo reintroduced the Moderno line, slightly updating the thin metal legs [which used to be available in copper. But not anymore] including the rocking chair. A Finnish women's magazine called Muoto says it costs around EUR1000, but that's only with the massive rocker subsidy the Finnish government gives to each new parent. There's socialism for ya. They also get two years paid parental leave, for both parents.
Sparkability has the Moderno rocker in an astounding 101 different fabric and color options for $2,300. [sparkability.net]
Muoto only rated the Moderno 8 pistettas out of a possible 15, though, whatever that means [muotolehti.fi]
