2010 Hit List: Kalifornia Rocker by Brandon Morrison, Whyrhymer


“I wanted it to feel as if you could sit down and drive off,” says Brandon Morrison about his auto-inspired Kalifornia Rocker. The woodworker looked to cars from the 1950s and ’60s to create the chair, whose subtly pointed slatted back mimics the prominent grills of classic cars such as the Buick LeSabre and Ford Falcon. The rocker is constructed of European beech and coated in a custom milk paint dubbed WhyrHymer Red. The odorless and eco-friendly CrystaLac lacquer provides a semi-gloss finish and the seat cushion is made of white leather, like the pristine interior of a mint midcentury ride. Morrison builds his retro rockers in his Los Angeles studio.
