The simple pleasure of swinging is one that most of us probably haven’t enjoyed in years. At the historic Convento Das Dominicas n the Portuguese city of Guimarães — itself a Unesco World Heritage site — designers Cláudia Oliveira and Isabel Bourbon of creative studio Elas Duas gave visitors of all ages an opportunity to sway on a special sound-enhanced installation.
Sitting is fantastic, but benches are boring. Imagine if the world was just littered with hammocks and swings for your own extravagant public lounging pleasure. These clever transforming swings could make that a blissfully lazy reality.
It’s hard to get excited about another drawn-out business meeting. Stiff chairs. A circle of equally bored faces. Maybe your leg falls asleep from all that sitting. You jiggle it silently in your seat and stumble gracelessly on your way out the door. Listen up, bosses and interior designers: It doesn’t have to be this way!
Whenever the urge to swing strikes — whether your’re in an industrial-looking warehouse, a busy construction site or on a crowded footpath — as long as you can find something overhead that’s sturdy enough to support your weight, you can string up this simple portable swing seat.

When you were a kid using the swings at recess, you always would get just high enough to feel the chains go slack at the top. You always imagined getting so high that you’d go completely around the top bar and come down on the other side, but it always seemed like an unattainable goal. An impossible dream, if you will. Well, now we have proof that if you have balls of steel, it’s possible to do the fabled full loop. Good god, this is a terrifying video. [CollegeHumor]
