The Monarchy Rocking Stool

Do you know what I've always wanted since childhood, but never have quite found myself enjoying in the comforts of my own home? A rocking chair. Not sure where the love of rocking chairs came from, since none of my childhood neighbors owned one, nor were rocking chairs the least bit common in a middle class Korean-American household (my girlfriend mentioned she grew up with 3 rocking chairs, inflaming chair envy). But show me a rocking chair and I'll show you someone who can find the simple pleasure of lazying away doing a whole lotta nothing...

The Monarchy Stool designed by Yiannis Ghikas looks like a lot of fun for adults and kids alike, with a simple low stool design which offers multidirectional rocking options. Would love to see the Monarchy rocking stool go from prototype to available (and affordable) product, since its small form factor would make it a good option for a small apartment dweller and rocking chair lover such as myself. I imagine this stool might be a fun temporary seating solution for those of us who like to play racing video games...if not just for the fun of watching people wobble around as they play.
