There are hammocks and then there are hanging loungers, and the new Swingrest by Daniel Pouzet is in a class of its own. The ultimate hanging lounger, Swingrest is one of the first products to emerge from Dedon Island resort, their Outdoor Living Lab in Siargao, Philippines.
Pouzet, co-architect and designer of Dedon Island, took his inspiration for the Swingrest from the extra-high ceilings of the resort’s villas. Borrowing the basket-like bottom from his earlier creation, the Nestrest, he has managed to create an altogether new work that feels even more spacious (and fits more people) while seeming to take up less space.
Perfect for hanging on the terrace or veranda, or even indoors, the Swingrest is distinguished by the purity and simplicity of its concept. Rather than complicate it unnecessarily, Pouzet decided to focus instead on refining the details of the design, developing, for instance, the Swingrest’s elegant suspension system, its 180° rotating tabletop and the specially-created cord that wraps around its exposed tubing. Available in a natural coloured weave, Swingrest comes with an optional fabric curtain cover that’s perfect for making shade and giving privacy while letting those inside see out.
