An object beautifully cradling the inner child

Geometrie da Compagnia, a product design studio by Italian architect Federica Sala presents ‘Happy Hammock’ – a kinetic sculpture which is an ode to the invaluable childhood memories that wither with passing time.
Hitting the nostalgia button – she recollects deeply embedded vivid memories of days spent at the beach house and the garden vivified by an array of hammocks.
”There are things that I loved a lot as a child that I rediscovered when I had a son.
Swings and hammocks are among those because what is more beautiful than the feeling of flying? For a child (and for me) there is nothing more magical” says Federica Sala.
This innovative alluring object is brilliantly conceptualized as a part of her new collection ’Playground’ featuring interactive sculptures.
Sala’s products, without compromising their authentic functionality, are a window to human emotions.
Seamlessly synthesizing an eternal fondness and her sculptural language – the Happy Hammock is conceived as the edifice of peace and joy.
The Barcelona-based designer’s unique approach transfigures a minimalistic vibrant red hammock into a giant smile to rest in – skillfully leading to an empathic object that embraces the dormant inner child and welcomes the user to enjoy, unwind and reflect at the same time.
Effortlessly breathing life into her sculptures – “balance, movement, human silhouette and interaction are the ingredients that interweave allowing my work to represent universal concepts in which any onlooker can recognize themselves” Sala adds.
