The Floating Divan, by Chiel Kuijl emerged directly from his art installations that refer to the endless networks and systems that we encounter in nature and society. His architectural projects consist of mainly rope and space constructed over land, water and in the air. The same inspiration and technique is applied on the Floating Divan. Kuijl includes swings and floating divans in his installations to involve human interaction.
The seat is made of a cross section of a tree trunk, which is held up in the air by a well thought-out pattern of knotted ropes. The Floating Divan has become an intimate place where one can slowly rockand withdraw their self from hasty ever yesterday life. Lifted from the ground, you are surrendered to the waves that move seemingly unpredictable through space.
