Inspired by the falling leaves of Autumn, Alberto Sanchez of mutdesign first designed a Leaf Swing, and now a Leaf Hammock, both intended for adults.
The poetic and romantic looking swing, initially conceived of in 2008, has since been refined to be thicker and include a self-supporting stand.
In addition, the swing has been joined in 2010 by the Hammon, a complimentary hammock for the collection. Both are made of a specially laminated material called Wave by IVF, in which the shapes of leaves are cut out, creating both an aesthetically pleasing design and beautiful shadows.
