The conoid chair and a rocking conoid chair are two totally different beasts in my opinion.

You may be able to make that and have it balanced beautifully but when someone sits in it, the CoG is going to change.

The CoG changes in the Conoid chair when a user sits in it, it is prevented from tipping forward by the position of the feet rails which are in contact with the ground – forward of the weight. That’s something you simply don’t have with the rocker.

If you can pull it off it will be stunning – and I’ll eat my hat, but I can’t see it somehow.

Step 1 would be to make a prototype or model and check it for balance. It’s what I’d do anyway.
