The FLEX WOODEN HAMMOCK, designed by Adam Cornish, is a post-modern organic-form variation on traditional hammocks that imitates the human spine and is designed to flex around the body for maximum comfort due to the rubber vertebra that permits wooden segments to move around (dimensions: W 2100mm x D 1000mm x H 200mm).
It is, also, environmentally-friendly as it is made out of plantation-grown plywood (32 mm birch ply) but it is designed in a way that it can be produced from a variety of other sheet materials as well, including bamboo.
Adam Cornish is a graduate of Industrial Design (2004) from the University of Technology in Sydney and, subsequently, of Furniture Design (2007) from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and is considered by many an up-and-coming Australian industrial designer with much to offer to the world of design in the future.
He already has an international career as he has received the 2011 Herman Miller Asia Pacific – Yves Behar Design Award and the 2010 Workshopped People’s Choice Award. He was also a finalist in the prestigious Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award (2010) while, at the same time, he has exhibited at Milan’s Salone Satellite.
