Royal Botania specializes in luxury outdoor furniture but by far the crown jewel of their design collection is this marvelous modern hammock: The Wave. Physical tension becomes visual tension in this impossibly hovering arced form consisting of simple curved metal supports bound together by support cloth and canopy above.

While the design is, from an aesthetic standpoint, absolutely stunning it remains to be tested for comfort. Also, one disadvantage of the exotic form it takes is that it necessarily lacks mobility – once installed it must remain in a single place, unlike a conventional hammock which is, traditionally, far more portable. Regardless of its practicality this hammock is, if nothing else, inspiring.
