In 2016, we collaborated with New Zealand outdoor furniture company Lujo to create a hammock with a difference. The task was to design a comfortable, durable product that set the brand apart from competitors’ products.
To overcome the tension line that’s formed when flat spreader bars at either end are used, we created angular spreader bars to distribute the weight evenly through the fabric. The hammock is made of durable fabric, stainless steel and high-grade timber, allowing Lujo to offer a five-year outdoor warranty to its customers. Although the hammock has a relatively large footprint, it packs down small enough to be shipped efficiently and sustainably.
