Adam Cornish showed this beautifully detailed Wooden Hammock at Workshopped 2010
The human spine, and its unique range of motion largely influenced the simple, flexible structure of this design.
Designed as an innovative stylish alternative to the common cloth hammock, the wooden segments allow the hammock to flex and mould to form a wooden cocoon, which cradles the body of the individual user.
Wooden Hammock is designed to be manufactured from a standard sheet of plantation grown plywood, maximizing economy of material whilst minimizing the environmental footprint.
Moo Design is a creative collaboration between artist Angus McDonald and furniture maker John Madden. It is a partnership which aspires to produce beautifully finished, high quality furniture and objects of visual and functional integrity.
McDonald and Madden conceived Moo furniture originally as an aesthetically gestural homage to the bull, whose low centre of gravity and overall proportions McDonald finds compelling as an artist. The artist and the furniture maker worked together to replicate the form and design of the bull in their first piece, the â€˜Moo Arm-Chairâ€™. The Moo range has now expanded to include more bull inspired pieces of furniture and other objects, including the “Ferdinand” rocker which is part of WORKSHOPPED 08.
Moo Design are creating contemporary furniture and objects grounded in classical elements of design and traditional methods of handmade construction. The objective with every new piece is that it be supremely functional and sculpturally elegant with a strong emphasis on finish and longevity, and the use of sturdy and environmentally sustainable natural materials.
