Kazula Rocker
The clean geometric lines of the Kaluza rocker capture our interest from every possible angle. This is a key component of Erik’s work. The chair is both a focal point in itself and a frame for the view which may be seen through the lines of the chair. Laser cut from 4mm steel plate Kaluza suspends the sitter and rocks in response to the sitters movement. A brilliant combination of comfort and design.

+ Material: 4mm stainless steel
+ Dimensions: L 120cm  w 48cm  h 108cm
+ Colors: white, special colors are available by request

This chair is available for sale in outdoorzgallery.

+ About Erik Griffioen

Erik Griffioen didn’t set out to be a designer but at some point in the creative process design found him.
Many of the chairs of his first collection are interconnected. From the first chair came a second, a third and a fourth. And each generation would produce one or two new designs. He allowed himself only to change a design to create a new one, by rearranging points and lines according to a certain number of rules. This method of working has made Griffioens work into a recognizable visual idiom.

Says Griffioen “My work has to be exciting from every angle, have character, beauty and quality. And most of all: it has to be comfortable.”

After a few years he changed his way of working and broke with his own rules. He started designing more intuitively and more from his imagination but without losing his visual signature. This opened another creative door and resulted in a great number of new designs.

Erik Griffioen graduated fine arts in 2001 in Enschede Holland. After a few years of making prototypes in his free time he made his debut in Belgium at Interieur 08 in November 2008. He then went to the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2009. He has since then shown work at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, the Homes and Interiors Scotland Exhibition in Glasgow, The Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam and most recently he was in England for the London Design Festival where he showed work at 100 % design.
