Philip Cooper is from the U.K. While living in Tarifa, Spain, in 2002, practising kite surfing and sound healing he came up with the first designs of the rockers. 16 years later the rockers are still being made with the same love and enthusiasm as the first. Philip uses rockers all the time, hanging in his home and workshop, he's often found swinging inside with his laptop…
“My rocker is my sanctuary. I regularly retreat for 20 minutes. Initially the chair swings but then slows down and I find its’ centre. I notice my breath and an inner calm spreads over me. I nearly fall asleep, but then remember I have things to do. Recharged and refreshed, I return.”
In 2005 a Spanish interior magazine, Habitannia, did a 4 page story on my rockers hanging chairs and business expanded. In 2006 I went to the cotton fields of India and begun manufacturing in volume a brushed cotton boho rocker and wooden freestanding rocker.
Over the years the design, form and materials have evolved. Philip makes small batch collections for buyers, individual custom models and prototypes in Barcelona and volume sales for global buyers from India.
Today on this site, all the boho rockers hanging chairs offered are hand crafted by Philip.
Philip Coopers designs of the integrated leg extension, 2 thick sheet chair with webbing, the string lengths and rocker stand are all registered and protected. The copiers lazily copy the 2002 model. I heard to be copied is for ones design to be validated. However rather than copy, it is better business and ethical to buy from me, from India in volume of 45 units minimum, where profitable margins can be achieved.. and if you do need to copy, you need a licence from Philip Cooper and to give credit where due.
Philip Cooper is available to help with installation of your rocker by booking a video call.

I wanted to thank you for your service. I searched and searched to find what I was looking for, saw a link to bohorockers and hey presto! Not only an amazing chair that now is the centre of attention, but also was reassuring to actually speak to philip, who not just solved my problem but came up with a better solution. Its why buying direct from the maker is so nice, because they care and take pride in their work. I cant recommend the bohorockers classic enough.Frank
Thanks for keeping me updated throughout, particularly the details of sending me the photo of you making my chair. The chair is up and as you said, its better than I imagined. I will treasure the bohorocker for ever. An excellent service and product, well done!Nicky
Thank you for our skype call to help me to find the beams and drill the hole. I then put a second hook in the bedroom as you suggested. we will be back soon to buy another, as it looks good in both places! I appreciate the great service, thank you.Simone
Thank you for sending a new chair so quickly, after the stripe classic went missing in transit. I appreciate good service, when someone goes over the call of duty without prompting to make something happen. The Bohorocker arrived in time to put it up at night so my wife would see it in the morning. Perfect!Antonio
