"Nest Rest" is a woven hanging lounge that takes inspiration from the way birds build their abodes in the wild. Designed by Paris-based Daniel Puzet and Fred Frety, two longtime collaborators of manufacturing firm DEDON, the shelter is made entirely from recyclable, non-toxic, weatherproof materials. Designed to be enjoyed in private or with company, Nest Rest is the perfect cocoon for relaxation, meditation, or open-air conversations.
DEDON’s “Nest Rest” is a piece of floating furniture that can be hung or sat on a base , resulting in a tranquil and private space . Sturdy yet light, it weighs less than 100kg and is 79 inch wide. It is made from a recyclable aluminum frame woven with a 1.5 inch wide special sustainable material called DEDON Fiber.
The fiber was developed in 1990 by famous German goalkeeper Bobby Dekeyser , who created the material for his family business and retired from football the same year. It is recyclable and probably the world’s first — and finest — synthetic resin fiber material. Its production implies zero waste , as every piece of aluminum off-cut or leftover strip of fiber gets sold or recycled back to make a new product.
