Hammocks and swings traditionally belong to garden furniture.But a modern interpretation of suspended seats for the rest allowed to expand their ranks - now suspended chairs and even sofas.Moreover, these elements are successfully placed in the interior of a city apartment, and even in the offices of business people.
Let's understand why a man pulls "swing."Scientists explain this innate skills that we acquire in the womb.Smooth and swaying motion calming effect on the psychological state of each person.
That is why even become adults, we also instinctively and nostalgically recall childhood, as soon as possible to catch the familiar rhythm of swing.What
Since the idea to move the suspended element of the apartment came from the garden theme, all the experiments on the adaptation of such structures occurs around existing objects for recreation. First Technology:
- worked out in outdoor conditions;
- and then transferred into the living room.
Experiments subjected virtually all garden furniture:
- street swing;
- garden benches;
- outdoor chairs and sofas.
One of the first in the field of well-known designers got everyone rocking chair, woven wicker or rattan.Thanks to its low weight and high strength, it has had promising in terms of furniture experiments.
And soon in a modified state of wicker chair began to appear in the interior of many apartments whose owners have tried to make the most comfortable sitting area.The experiment proved successful, because the mounting of the outboard seats in the house create a real comfort.
To make a person more stable landing, designers had to come up with some form of the chair that looks like half a ball.This design allows :
- suspension device installed at the top;
- evenly distribute the load of a seated person.
designers quickly found a replacement and materials to replace natural rattan vine and came artificial fibers, which have some advantages :
- lighter weight;
- greater flexibility;
- maloshumnost finished product.
Hammocks with benches and sofas are not accustomed to the interiors of apartment buildings as to give them a rounded shape takes a lot of space in the room.And in a city apartment that was unacceptable.
But the idea was the basis for further experiments, and the light began to appear furniture futuristic exhibits.And the film industry contributed to the popularization of such furniture in the interior - most films represent the future of human life is surrounded by fantastic forms of furniture.
Suspended structures for business
chairs suspended from the ceiling, and appeared in the recreation areas of business structures.Of course, the trend of furniture for the business world have made their own contribution to the adaptation of the subject.It would hardly have looked appropriate hanging wicker sofa or chair in the office of a serious leader.
Besides the desire to equip the interior with the help of an overhead design chair or sofa, the owners of facilities required and the availability of technical capability to install.
In fact, besides the weight of the chair suspension system should withstand the weight of a seated person.This is not always dependent on the strength of the suspension system.For simple designs chairs, whose weight does not exceed 100 kg with sitting, it was sufficient to install the anchor eyebolt.
reference: permissible load on the ceiling should be specified in the BTI or technician of the management company (see. Ceilings: design features) is measured in kilograms per 1 sq.meter area, and it should be counted in the square decimeter.It was on this area and the ceiling suspension system will be affected.
- weight sitting in his chair will be more 100kg;
- a permissible load on the ceiling will be smaller than the calculated weight;
the problem can be solved in the traditional way.Firstly, the load must be distributed over a larger surface of the ceiling. And secondly, it can be done either:
- installing a larger number of anchor bolts and combining them into a single system;
- or using a special load frame, which is the basis for a false ceiling plasterboard, as well as fabric ceiling.
Accordingly, that this should be taken care at the stage of repair facilities.
where to set
apartments in high-rise buildings hanging sofas and chairs often installed in residential areas :
- on balconies and loggias.
kitchens, bathrooms, toilets and corridors are of little use for such purposes, since the main purpose of floating and swinging chairs - the owner of a good rest. And this in no small measure contributes to the rest of the environment:
- interior space;
- houseplants, etc.
Conclusion: As you can see, the elements of street comfort were able to successfully adapt and in a residential area.Moreover, their presence in the room creates a special atmosphere conducive to proper rest owners, and always a genuine interest in the guests.
