The hammocks are suspended from the structural ceiling of an empty space.

Here's some more from the architects:


Concept

This chair has shape that the ceiling has hung down, and exists like the middle of furniture and construction.

Seibu by Ryuji Nakamura Architects

Please sit decisively though it might not be seen the one to sit seemingly.

Seibu by Ryuji Nakamura Architects

I think that this chair begins to appear sitting, stands by the space, appears, and invents various experiences and scenes.
