The rocking-2-gether chair is a hybrid furniture between a rocking chair and dog/cat house. A "merge" & "morph" design process of a typical rocking chair and doghouse generates this hybrid rocking chair. It combines the idea of pet shelter, (human + pet) body relaxation and pushes the chairs functionality to a different, more intimate and personal level between human and pet. The rocking-2-gether chair is made out of CNC milled birch plywood. The density and amount of the CNC milled "ribs" can be controlled by using different sized aluminum spacers ergo controlling the visual connection between the person and pet as well as seating quality. The fewer plywood "ribs" are being used, the stronger the visual connection is between the human and the pet. The design process of the rocking-2-gether chair showcases the successful combination of digital modeling and digital fabrication.
