The curved forms of the Gaivota rocking chair were defined by Reno Bonzon, as he sat in deep snow during a stay in the Alps and had a look at his body-print after standing up. Keeping ergonomics in mind, Reno wanted to reproduce this comfortable shape. He paid special attention to both dimensions and balance making this rocking chair very comfortable whatever the size of the person may be.
The emblematic part of the work of Reno Bonzon is certainly the rocking chair “Gaivota”, probably the most rewarded creation in Brazil, combining at the same time aestheticism and ergonomics. 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.
