by Kim Derby What has been dubbed the "Rapson Revival" began with the reintroduction of Ralph Rapson’s mid-century modern Rapid Rocker. First manufactured in the 1940s by Knoll, the classic chair had been out of production for 60 years when Rapson Inc. made it available again at the end of 2011. Rapson’s design aesthetic focused on craftsmanship, natural materials, and the human form. The cantilevered arms of his Rapid Rocker have been copied time and again, but this now-iconic design set the precedent.
