Rocking Chairs

Rocking Chairs , Dutch Design Week, Best of 2016, The Netherlands

30 Oct 2016

Interactive sound-work.

Rocking Chairs are chosen as one of the best projects of the Dutch Design Week 2016 ! The jury is impressed by the talent of the artists Cristian Grässli and Strijbos & Van Rijswijk, and highlight the chairs because of the combination of beautiful visual design and interactive musictechnology.

Strijbos & Van Rijswijk & Grässli invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy making music in a one-of-a-kind sonic rocking chair, where physical movement diffuses and modifies sound emanating from specially developed sensorpack and loudspeaker technology. Swaying back and forth produces an interactive, personalized performance where the compositions you hear are directly shaped by your individual movements and ability to coordinate and work in unison with your fellow rockers.
