The Pastille chair, sometimes referred to as the Gyro, is a novel interpretation of a rocking chair. With its bold organic form, the chair exemplifies the sophisticated approach to synthetic materials of many Scandinavian designers. Designed for interior or exterior use, it won an American Industrial Design award in 1968.
