Japanese firm Ryuji Nakamura Architects installed these vinyl hammocks in a department store in Tokyo.
The hammocks are suspended from the structural ceiling of an empty space.
Here's some more from the architects:
This chair has shape that the ceiling has hung down, and exists like the middle of furniture and construction.
Please sit decisively though it might not be seen the one to sit seemingly.
I think that this chair begins to appear sitting, stands by the space, appears, and invents various experiences and scenes.
