Designer Martin Price, a 2009 graduate from Central Saint Martin with a First-Class Honors Degree in BA Product Design, came up with the idea to design and craft a baby cradle that when outgrown or no longer useful can actually be sawn in half to become two functional rocking chairs.
Baby Cradle Becomes Two Rockers
The result is surprisingly attractive – both the cradle and the rockers are elegant and attractive pieces, each on their own as opposed to looking piece-meal.
The project grew out of his research and dissertation about looking into people’s attachment to their possessions and understanding how they use objects to trigger memories of events and stories in their lives.
The piece was created in his workshop using ash wood with a foam mattress.
