Concept

This multifunctional piece was part of the unusual exhibition design for Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century gallery, opened in 1942 in New York. The various positions and combinations yield a total of 18 different uses.
Similarly to the Correalistisic Instrument, the Correalistic Rocker was not just a relaxing way to enjoy pictures was also a work of art itself. The rocker was likewise designed and made for the Art of This Century gallery in 1942.
