Hammock time

New Yorkers love their group hammocking and won’t let anything get in their way – not even such minor inconveniences as a December evening chill!

Hammocks under glowing arches, aka Flatiron Sky-line, was the winning proposal for the annual Flatiron Public Plaza Holiday Design Competition, a joint initiative by Van Alen Institute and the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership.

Designed by LOT, an architectural and design firm based in New York City and Greece, it was installed at the foot of the Flatiron building, mirroring its shape and offering brief, swinging naps to weary New Yorkers throughout the end-of-year holiday season.
