If you want the best, you have to pay for the best. I get that; I just don’t have the money to do that so I’m like 99% of the world and just admire all these cools things from a distance. The Petiole Hammock is by far the king of hammocks. Handmade in Sweden and recipient of Les Découvertes award for innovation and creativity at the prestigious Maison & Objet design show in Paris, this is what a hammock should be. With its electropolished 304 stainless steel pole and UV protective canopy, this hammock is sure to make almost any view pleasant.
Recipient of Les Découvertes award for innovation and creativity at the prestigious Maison & Objet design show in Paris, this self-suspended hammock is the culmination of 20 years of research and design. Handmade in Sweden by just two artisans who painstakingly mold each piece during a process that requires four weeks to craft just one, the entire hammock is supported by a 9 1/2′ electropolished 304 stainless steel pole that is curved to form a half circle, enabling both ends of the bed to be hung from the pole. The sheer canopy blocks up to 86% of UV rays yet allows you to gaze at the sky, creating the relaxing sensation of swaying gently under the canopy of a tree. The heavy-duty steel and precisely balanced design provide enough strength to hold 1/4 ton. Measuring 12′ long by 8 1/4′ wide, the hammock easily accommodates two people. Mounts in concrete. 145 2/3″ L x 114″ H x 98 1/2″ W. (770 lbs.)
