Campeggi Siesta Hammock Bench

A tropical hammock within a city bench, comfortable and unconventional. Green, white or light blue epoxy varnished metal structure, white nylon sprung base.
Size: L 190 cm, H 95 cm, D 65 cm.

The Brand: In order to avoid boredom of acquired positions, to overcome stillness of static situations, to restart desires and pleasures, Campeggi is imaging a bright and dynamic universe full of objects ready to be moved or transformed in order to comply with your pleasure of dwelling, living and changing. To speed up before a yawn, Campeggi is proposing you its own dictionary made of Comfort, Agility, Movement, Practicalness, Economy, Gracefulness, Game and always Inexhaustible.
of the collection; Movement as a fundamental rule which allows a trasformability of every single project; Practicalness as the result of a corporate tradition which, while dreaming and following new imaginaries, does not venture in “Pindaric flights” within impractical territories; Economy as the first target; Gracefulness of measure, balance and sobriety, resulting
from the strict and knowing co-operation with the best international designers; Game as a serious pleasure, sure of the importance given by a smile; Inexhaustible as a logic consequence of a corporate thinking which does not put into practice what is obvious and which never sinks into acquired positions. A dictionary as a catalogue, therefore, constantly enriched with unconventionality, freshness, humour, innovation, and lightness.
and not banality, faintness, luxury, but dynamic intelligence and not static stillness.
Stillness prevents and does not register event in the near world. Things that are not changing are bound to dry up; just those that can face a change do not die.
