Bicycle-Themed Rocking Randonneur Chair by Two Makers

UK-based furniture designer Two Makers recently showcased the rocking Randonneur Chair at the Cycle Show at NEC, Birmingham held from 25th-28th September 2014. You may be thinking, what this chair has to do with the cycling event? Well, this is not an ordinary rocking chair but hand-built using bicycle-making mechanism by the company designers and founders Andrew McDonald and Simon Taylor.

The design of the chair is inspired by classic lightweight bicycles of the 1930s and 1940s. Its framework is constructed from Reynolds 631 steel tubing and crafted in perfect bike-like geometries using high-end bicycle building techniques. The entire steel framework rests on wooden rocking chair aesthetics, with two handles attached at front of the armrests. These handles look similar to those of a real road bike which adds character to any automotive-themed interiors.

    Two observations. Wonderful, but bottle cages are bolted on upside down. Get out the 5MM Allen wrench and correct that. Also, why down-tube decals, but nothing on the head tubes? No vintage French bike would ever sport that look. Better with out down-tube decals… overkill. We get that it is a steel-lugged, bicycle-themed rocking chair. Otherwise, brilliant and stunning, both.
