Description

"The emblematic part of the work of Renaud Bonzon is certainly the rocking chair ""Gaivota"", probably the most rewarded creation in Brazil, combining at the same time aestheticism and ergonomy. Both Museum of the Brazilian House Prize and Movesp Prize winner in 1988, this creation was selected in 1990 to represent Brazil at the Biennial of Design in São Paulo.
The curved forms of both seat and back were defined by Renaud Bonzon, as he was sat in deep snow during a stay in French Alps and had a look at his bodyprint after standing up. Keeping ergonomy in mind, Reno wanted to reproduce this confortable form. He paid a special attention to both dimensions and balance making this rocking chair very confortable whatever the size of the person may be.
The Jury of the Museum of the Brazilian House Prize particularly underlined ""the principle of manufacturing giving the product its great lightness"" as well as ""the aesthetic qualities combined with the ergonomic factor"". For the sake of environment he chose the plywood manufacturing process in order to give value to wood trimmings. Furthermore this process allowing the creation of large curves, Reno took  advantage of this property to introduce the movement in his creation. The design of the rocking chair, its sinuous curves, irrevocably reminds the movement even statically represented on a picture. Elegance and confort characterize the Gaivota."
