In the tropics I spent a lot of time in conventional hammocks. I soon realized that their comfort is largely a myth. The arch shape of the hammock just didn’t match the rather complex body shape. I like challenges, and inspired by the design of paragliders using different lengths of rope, I tried to see if I could apply something similar to the hammock. I changed the lying direction, experimented with individually measured rope and lo and behold … it worked! And it felt so good and received such a positive feed-back that I decided to commercialize this design. The hammock CLOUD135 was born.
Our CLOUD 135 hammocks are handcrafted piece by piece in Losenstein, Upper Austria. The production is small but of high quality. Our products can be purchased on our website or at trade fairs and garden markets during our summer tour through Austria and Germany. Please refer to the Calendar of Activities for more information about where to meet us next. You are also welcome to visit our studio in Losenstein by prior arrangement.
Die HängemattenManufakture e.U. offers affordable, ergonomic hanging furniture designed to give a comfortable, healthy sitting position that helps alleviate or even prevent existing back problems. Through our website or directly during our product showcases in Summer Fairs & Garden Markets, we try to raise awareness of the need for a healthy sitting position and to present the benefits of CLOUD135 to the public. We understand well-being and quality as an all-encompassing concept. Through ongoing development, we strive to keep our products to the highest standard. We do our best to strike a balance between environmental protection, fair trade, human factors and good business. We want to enjoy our work and have good reason to be proud of our products.
Our hammocks are handcrafted and produced in limited edition. Quality control is optimal since we closely supervise or do ourselves all stages of the production. We use high-quality materials and also optimize the work process so that we produce almost no waste. Our suppliers are carefully selected European companies that also offer fair working conditions and comply with environmental regulations. The most delicate part of the work, the assembling process (stringing work), we do by hand in our workshop.
To sum it up, I believe that the hammock CLOUD135 can be as good for you as it is for me. There are no other seats or armchairs into which I am so comfortable while sitting for extended periods of time. In the Cloud, I can work on my lap-top or read a book feeling totally relaxed.
A lot of effort and thought went into transforming the simple hammock as we know it into a truly ergonomic piece of furniture. It works wonders for my spine and I hope that you will be as satisfied with it as I am.
