Flederhaus - An entire building of hammocks!


A genius idea that I thought only existed in my wildest imagination but then poof... there it is. I am loving this Flederhaus (translation - 'bat house') building in Vienna, Austria dedicated to hanging hammocks! From what I understand it is a free public space that anyone can come to hang out in the MQ Vorplatz near the Museums Quarter open daily 10:00-19:00 until October. Pretty much hammock paradise. Check out your pretty view of the surrounding buildings too. Would you kick back and take a break there?

Yes, okay, but the real question is, what is up with the bowling pin with breasts?

As your laying in a hammock you can gaze at the sculpture of giant boobs next door. How nice..

kordula said...

oh wow! that looks so relaxing :)

it's actually called flederhaus btw... it's a play on the german word fledermaus, which means bat.

rachel @ blackeiffel said...

Thanks Kordula, I can't believe I missed that! Thanks for the correction.

rachel @ blackeiffel said...

I know folks, that boob sculpture is indeed a little bizarre!
