A piece of furniture, designed and made by David Trubridge, on display in Te Papa. The label explains: Body Raft 2000 is a balanced, lying-down rocking chair. It echoes the shape of a traditional Moriori waka puhara (reed canoe), and suggests the comfort of a hammock.
The chair is made of steam-bent American ash, Australian hoop pine, plywood and stainless steel.
