Austrian/Croatian design collective Numen expanded their exploration of flexible space into nets for a contemporary art space in Belgium earlier this year. I love the way these provide for both bouncy activity and calm contemplation.

I recently came across Numen's creative interactive installations, a mix between art and design, on the landscape architecture blog Landezine. These are the same guys who strung up an alien-like web of packing tape in Melbourne's Federation Square last year. Their most recent project, Net, is a series of flexible nets suspended in the air, connected at various points to create an undulating and disorienting landscape. Or, as the designers call it, a "community hammock."
