Australian designer Adam Cornish's hammock is crafted from a single piece of wood and mimics the human spine.
 
The hammock is made from a single sheet of plantation-grown accoya plywood. The plywood sheet is cut into 22 different pieces and held together by a rope. Rubber vertebrae allow for movement similar to that of the human spine.
 
Cornish has won multiple awards for the project, including winning a Herman Miller design competition and the Workshopped's Peoples Choice Award.
