INSPIRATION:
The design has been inspired by a shape of a surf board that is why it integrates so well with natural beach environment, it aslo reminds a ship.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Panama Banana is an outdoor furniture for active day at the beach. It could be used as a hammock to relax but once you want some action - turn it 90 degrees and you will get a football goal! When you want to take it away - take out the support details and it will fold flat. It is new kind of outdoor furniture that promotes active relaxation.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Because of its light weight and the position to be flat it can be easily moved around. To assemble it you just need to put two support details and you a get a hammock. To change the function to football goal you just need to turn it 90 degrees. Finally, when you don't need it anymore just take out the supports details and it folds flat.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research has been made about nowadays people needs and habits. It showed that nowadays people are less active, however they still care about being healthy and in shape. It also showed that at the beach people are tend to be laying down all the day without moving, because beach sport equipment is usually already taken by others or because "relaxing" for them means not doing any physical activities. That is why it's needed to have furniture that provides people "active relaxation".

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge was to create support details that could keep strong construction and later you could take them off in order to fold flat.
