The idea of sprawling out on the lush green lawn is an appealing one but the actual practice is rarely as pleasant. The Shallow Swing by Gisbert Baarmann was developed to provide a bit of extra support and padding to those who wish to sit in the yard.
Shaped like a curved discus, this pad is made of a sculpted wooden frame with flexible yet tense fabric stretched across the entire opening. The resultant surface provides a bit of give for the user while elevating him slightly from the hard ground beneath.
Because of the bowing of the beautiful Shallow Swing by Gisbert Baarmann, the sitter is permitted either to perch passively or to sway slightly, treating the piece like a sort of rocking chair.
