It was love at first sight when we discovered the Banda rocking chair by Doel Fresse as part of Design in Puerto Rico’s exhibit during Wanted, in New York city. We were immediately transported to a balcony with a dreamy ocean view. The design is based on traditional steel rod furniture from the Caribbean, but with a timeless modern twist. The chair seat and back integrate bands that create a stripes pattern reminiscent of the iconographic beach chairs and the shadows created by jalousie windows, alluding to Caribbean lifestyle and its tropical air. This awesome yellow rocker is the perfect fit for a balcony, patio and outdoor living space adding a casual vibe with lots of modern style. The Banda collection was designed to be efficiently fabricated using similar components.
