Dynamic Growth, 2018
Levitat is a hanging hammock with triangular geometry. It is a Dynamic Growth product designed to be installed mainly outdoors.
Due to its success, the client asked us to design and develop a support to install the hammock without the need of pre-existing pillars, trees or elements. The first decision we made, due to the non-domestic dimensions of the original product, was to propose the use of the reduced (hexagonal) version.
From here, a series of technical parameters were defined: local manufacturing, use of existing utensils, use of standard alloys, compact packaging and easy assembly and disassembly.
With all these restrictions, the best way to deal with the product was from the CAE simulation, where both the elastic deformation and the breaking rate of different alternatives were analyzed, discovering, with great joy, that the most efficient solution was also the most beautiful.
