Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and educated at Harvard University, Roberto Gil trained as an architect before delving into furniture design. His influences include Gerit Rietveld, Jean Prouve, Donald Judd, and a delight in everyday objects he learned from his cartoonist father. Gil's designs are very simple constructions avoiding superfluous decorative elements. His line of children's furniture has been sold at the MoMA Design Store in New York, the Guggenheim Museum Store, and the Dovetusai gallery in Milano; as well as Barney's New York and FAO Schwarz.

Questions & Answers
Offi Rockabye Kid's Rocking Chair
J. Finn from Berkeley, CA
I like the rocking chair - it's cute and easy to put together and my son seems to enjoy rocking in it as well as standing behind it to rock it. The only issues I have are, the lid is loud when slammed and catches fingers some of the time (I have added little cushion bumpers to it to handle both issues). Also, my son is very tall for his age (32" at 10 mths) so the back of the chair is a little short. I'd still recommend it though.
