HOK ARCHITECTS + CORTECH

A safer, more relaxing, rocking chair.

Tangent partnered with HOK a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm and Cortech an emerging leader in providing product solutions for the correctional environment, to design and develop seating for a safe and humane work environment for correctional and other intensive use institutions.

The Radial Rocker is a rocking chair, that is ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and safety. The Rocker is a durable, one piece, rotationally molded plastic chair with no steel or wood components. The low center of gravity provides stability and a smooth rocking motion. The Radial Rocker has a 56° rocking radius, which allows for a bigger rocking motion. The chair passes the Cal 133 flammability test, is stain resistant, and is manufactured right here in the USA. Tangent worked with HOK and Cortech on tool drawings, ergonomic studies, and optimizing the design for production.
