stal collectief: koala 45 hammock

koala 45 by stal collectief

belgian design group stal collectief have conceived ‘koala 45’, an over-sized hammock offering users an unusual meeting place to re-convene. the wooden structure, held together by 12 bolts, can carry up to 8 people. the development ultimately acts as a place for open-air conversations and relaxation.

    Nicky says:
  • They’ve ‘conceived’ a children’s fort.
    Whats the big deal.
    Why is something this vapid given any attention and why do any of the people involved in this think they have done something special?
    Did Mommy give them a trophy every time they flushed the toilet?
    ‘Simply Genius’ according to what judge of genius??????

  • how is the stability working, without diagonal cross-strut? can’t imagine.

    bene says:
  • I love it. How simple, beautiful and fun.

    Mr RCVS1 – get a life!

    Well adjusted says:
  • Somehow, I think this can bring a grown up to feel like a kid again. At least it would work for me. Maybe it’s not genius but looks like can make people happy and that is something these days.

    Pato Villanueva says:
  • Anyone know what size lumber they used?

    Esc says:
  • rcvs1 it’s not about what they think but what they DID when other people are just THINKING.
