Rocking Chair for two

I’m sure a rocking chair is not what you’d expect to see from a technology program. But Chairish, Annelie Berner’s rocking chair for two is the work product for a class called Design for Digital Fabrication. Using CAD software, Annelie went through many design and prototyping iterations. Eventually, she cut the design out of plywood with a computer-controlled (CNC) router. The pieces are held together with threaded rod and nuts to make a chair for sharing.
