Ride Out Summer on an Awesome Geodesic Swing

Shaunacy Ferro

Out with creaky porch swings, in with fancy geodesic dome couches: Kodama Zomes makes seating that Buckminster Fuller would kill to lounge in. The geodesic dome swings are suspended from above and made of webbing, metal, and wood. Inside, cushions turn the hanging birdcage into a plush love seat for reading, hanging out, napping, or any other outdoor activity.

“The unrestricted pendulum motion and womb-like feel instill trust, comfort, and peace of mind in the user,” the company claims. “Inside a zome, one instantly feels at ease and in awe.” Even if you aren’t looking for a backyard womb, these swings look super comfy.

Think of all the possibilities for lounge fun. Hang it from a tree! Put it on the front porch! Suspend it over the water (just make sure the tide isn’t about to come in).

Find out more from Kodama Zomes. They're hand-made in Oregon, and prices depend on the size of the dome.
