Suspended Reading Nook: Hammock Net by Ooda


Wow, talk about a radical place to sit. This hammock net is part of an apartment redesign, “227 Flat”, by Ooda. The hammock net hangs out over the air near the stairs. You’re literally suspended half way up room! You access the net hammock from the 2nd floor – and once you’re in the middle, it must feel quite liberating. It reminds us of the catch nets they used to use under the trapeze artists at the circus. It’s made of sturdy materials, naturally, to support human weight. What a conversation piece, especially when there’s someone in it! It might be a very comfortable spot to sleep too – an extra bed for unexpected guests. As long as there’s no sleepwalking involved!


What a fun place to read a book!
