The Manu Nest is already impressive for its stunningly intricate design. The fact that the hanging chair is made out of volcanic rock takes it to a whole other level. Better known as Basalt, a magmatic rock that renews itself quickly through volcanic activity, it is an unlimited resource that makes it the perfect material to use for such things as furniture -- just imagine what bamboo and Basalt could accomplish together.

Created by Latvian interior designer Raimonds Cirulis of Maffam Freeform, the Manu Nest is both sturdy and lightweight. Specifically made for outdoor spaces, the Manu Nest boasts a curvaceous shape that is perfect for some weekend relaxation. The Manu Nest’s striking visual appeal would also be great for indoor use, especially if the room is large enough to accommodate it.
