This cocoon-like seat is made from cold-bent plywood and designed by a group of people within the Victoria University of Wellington. Cradle is a sustainable rocking chair created by a collaborative effort to aid people with autism and Rhythmic Movement Disorder (RMD).  

Because rocking is one of the calming activities that is recommended for autistic folks, this special seat is a soothing and aesthetically pleasing addition to their homes. Safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly.
