Sit back and vent in the Porsche 356-inspired rocking chair
Designed exclusively for the Luftgekühlt Porsche celebration held at Modernica’s Los Angeles premises earlier this month, the Aircooled Arm Shell rocker chair is a collaborative effort between the American furniture maker and Deus ex Machina, best known for its custom motorcycles. Penned by the latter’s in-house designer, Carby Tuckwell, it incorporates the vent hole pattern of a naked 356 Speedster seat into its Eames-inspired glassfiber body, using the same processes and machines originally used in the 1950s. Only 50 examples of the limited first-edition Aircooled chair will be produced, and at the time of writing there are still a few available from the Deus ex Machina shop.
