The Hammock Lounge was designed for an empty, rectangular area in the upper-level of a vacant warehouse. This large soft-construction creates an airy tapestry, which adorns the old building and simultaneously transforms the empty space into a functional environment. The geometric proportions and physical constraints of the old architecture were large factors in determining the final pattern.
The piece may be regarded as an installation, or "site-specific furniture." The flat, graphical illusion is manipulated, acting as a flexible plane that accommodates the weight of people. When sitting in it, one loses their sense of height and feels weightlessly suspended beneath the beautiful light coming down from large skylights in the ceiling. The piece brings dead space back to life by reconsidering its potential.
