The urban environment is full of distractions and stimuli that can cause stress and mental health issues among its inhabitants. In times of stress, people have always gravitated towards nature and studies show that spending time in natural environments can reduce stress and improve subjective well-being.

Parkhäng is a portable hammock that invites people to venture out of the city and take a break in a soothing natural environment while swinging from the branches of a big tree. The plywood rappel rings make it easy to set up on any branch while the modular design makes it easy to clean, repair and recycle. When not in use it folds into a convenient backpack for effortless transportation.
