hammock

You can sign me up for one of these. Designner Ieva Laurina imagines her own version of a harem tent strung between two trees. Called the Nest hammock, it will be displayed at the upcoming (October) Łódź Design Festival. Laurina describes her work:

The hammock is like a flying cloud. And it can make you fly as well. It gives shelter from the busy everyday life, taking you into another world. It is like going back in time to your childhood, when everything seemed so easy and accessible and you could almost walk above the ground. The hammock can be used inside the house as well as outside. Besides the functional side it is a sculptural object that reacts to wind and any movement. Watching the ropes move is almost like looking at a waterfall.

Beautiful and comfortable.
