The Self-Suspending Petiole Hammock From Hammacher Schlemmer

Meet the award-winning Petiole Hammock.

Why We Love It: The Petiole Hammock has won the Les DĂ©couvertes award for innovation and creativity at the Maison & Objet design show is Paris, and is 20 years in the making.

Each hammock is handmade in Sweden by the two creators, who mould each piece themselves—it takes four weeks just to craft one entire hammock.

It’s supported by a nine-foot, stainless steel pole that is curved into a half circle, allowing the Petiole Hammock to support itself. The sheer canopy blocks 86% of UV rays, but still allows its occupants to see the sky.

The hammock measures approximately eight feet wide and 12 feet long, easily allowing two people to lay side by side.
