The Wave Hammock

The Swedish designer duo Erik NYBERG and Gustav STRÖM presented the unique leisure creation WAVE at MAISON & OBJET OUTDOOR INDOOR in Paris September 5-9, 2008. WAVE is available in white, cappuccino, black or turquoise with two base options allowing for integration in the terrace or embedment into the ground.

It measures an impressive 12 ft x 9.5 ft x 8 ft, yet stands on a single point. The construction gives it its unique floating impression, and allows it to withstand the elements. Plus, it can rotate 90° around the base, giving it additional flexibility depending on the position of the sun.

The materials in WAVE consist of electro-polished stainless steel and perforated fabric, one type for the upper roof section, and another for the lying section. The fabric is semi-transparent, and at the same time it offers protection from the sun, blocking 86 percent of the suns rays.

The idea is to convey the feeling of lying underneath the canopy of a tree, surrounded by a defined, natural space.
