South African artist Porky Hefer's firm, Animal Farm, has created a concept in which they create outdoor "chill-out pods" for people, similar to a birds nest. These chill-out pods are made from woven fibers and steel so that they can hold the weight of a human.

This project was inspired by the African weaver birds. These birds are known to be the worlds best architects when it comes to building sculptural nests from fallen twigs and leaves.

This seems like a pretty sweet idea to me. I would love to just chill out in a nest all day, listen to music, and sip on a nice cold beverage. I dont know how i would make one of these chill-out pods, but if one was supplied for me, i would certainly rock it.
