Hammocks are great for the backyard, camping, backpacking, when your pregnant and on bed rest, or for turning your large capacity vehicle (in our case our minivan) into a camping vessel, more on that in this post . We make our own hammocks because: It’s cheap (i.e we can’t afford an ENO ).

There is no escaping those innate and early-learned associations – for some, it means sleeping to gentle noises on planes, and for others, the act of rocking tilts us softly into a deep slumber. Richard Clarkson and company wanted to create a kind of low-tech, sensory-deprivation, sofa-style seat where one can curl up and forget the workaday worries of ordinary life … and perhaps even doze over before you notice you are slowly falling asleep. While there is art and craft in this object, there is science that went into its design as well.

For all its theoretical complexity, the final form looks quite simple (and extremely comfortable).

A winner of the RedDot Industrial Design Competition by Ilian Milinov , it remainsl just a 3D computer drawing – no one has boldly stepped up to produce these cozy curiosities in real life (yet). The neatest part, perhaps, is the sheer versatility – it actually looks rather relaxing, at least for leaning or working on your left side, but one would imagine two versions should be produced for those of us not quite so ambidextrous. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
