Weaver's Nest by Animal Farm



Cape Town designers Animal Farm have produced an "organic lounger" made from woven branches that hangs in a tree and is reached by a rope ladder.


The structure, based on a weaver bird's next, consists of a welded steel frame covered in woven branches.


Suspended three metres above the ground, the nest can hold two adults and a small child.


The designer, Porky Hefer, is currently producing a second, larger nest which can carry four adults.

    I would love to lounge in this thing. And for some reason it reminds me of a gas mask.

    Love the idea. The experience of sitting in this must be amazingly reflective. The shape could use some work; looks like a motorcycle helmet.

  • the metal frame is a little disappointing…

    Amit… just to remind you… this thing is holding up more that a sparrow and it’s 4 babies!

    Think it is a beautiful object myself, even if others think it a shame that it isn’t more than that and go all the way to not include a frame and defy the laws of gravity!
    Well done.
