The Cascade has a short rocking action and is beautifully balanced, promoting active sitting. Natural body movement constantly changes the position of the chair easing joints, muscles and ligaments. It is a high performance chair in every sense of the word.

The Cascade was based on the Academic chair and the original was made for Melbourne based Philosophy lecturer Aubrey Townsend. He desired a chair that kept him moving while he sat reading for work or listening to opera. Swedish designer/maker Rasmus Malbert worked with Evan on the Cascade over a seven week period.

“The Cascade Rocking chair holds a special place in my heart. It was a very satisfying commission and is still the most complicated chair I have ever designed; also the most successful. The process was more like climbing Everest than going for a stroll in the hills, but with a similar sense of achievement. The balance is perfect: it’s as happy to sit quietly as it is to rock. I am not aware of another chair anywhere that performs quite like it.” - Evan Dunstone.
