It may not be springy, but the Dymaxion Sleep garden installation conjures up thoughts of trampoline escapades. The structure was actually created with a communal hammock in mind; it is part of this year's International Garden Festival at Jardins de MÃ©tis/Reford Gardens.
Designed by Jane Hutton and Adrian Blackwell, the Dymaxion Sleep was actually modeled after Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion World Map. The term 'dymaxion sleep' comes from the idea of sleeping for 30 minutes every 6 hoursâ€"or only 2 hours per day. Fuller was said to do this for an extended period of time.
Creating an atmosphere of fun and relaxation, the Dymaxion Sleep is suspended over triangulated planting beds. What a perfect way to enjoy the calming aromas and fresh air this garden has to offer.
