“Kinesis” swing

By | BLOG, Furniture, Product Design | No Comments

“Kinesis” is not an ordinary swing, made of 100% hemp!

The idea of the “Kinesis” project was to develop a design, mass-consumer product using some alternative and sustainable materials.

In fact, all the “Kinesis’s” components are made of different hemp-based materials such as hemp rope and a bio-composite material used for seat and handles, which mixes hemp fiber with natural binder.

A hemp fiber has plenty of advantages: it is light, water-resistant, strong and durable. The material’s mechanical resistance characteristics are well shown in bending & tensile stresses.

All these benefits make the “Kinesis” swing the product that might replace popular and modern plastic swings.

The “Kinesis” project, will take a part in the exhibition dedicated to different design objects made of hemp-based materials and will be exposed during Milan Design Week 2017.
