Royal Botania specializes in luxury outdoor furniture, and a lot of it is beautiful and clearly high quality. 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 of this suspended lounger 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.
From Royal Botania:
“Leave your troubles behind and be overwhelmed by a wave of wellness, hovering halfway between heaven and earth, while simply doing nothing. Wave is more than a hammock. It is the icon of ultimate outdoor luxury. That is why Wave can be found at the poolside of some of the most exclusive hotels, and the most outstanding private villas around the world.”
“Royal Botania designs iconic, luxury outdoor furniture for discerning clientele. By only using the highest quality materials combined with top craftsmanship, Royal Botania produces sleek, striking furniture collections. Royal Botania leads the world in creating stunning outdoor furniture for patios, pools, gardens and homes that is both stylish and sustainable.”
“In the early 90’s, luxury and refined design were limited to indoor spaces and very rarely found outdoors. Our goal was to change that. We formed Royal Botania to create beautiful outdoor spaces. Our inspiring journey over the years has allowed us to channel our creativity and strive for excellence. The end result is a brand that indulges in comfortable, well-crafted, and superbly made outdoor furniture. “
