Difficult to explain but easy to understand once you try it, Lapso is a new addition to Sancal’s catalogue. Lesur & Venot’s creation was recognised with an Hermès award for the Best Author design in 2014. Years later, Sancal rescued this unique vertical hammock, ideal for crowded public spaces, enabling individuals to lean back for a moment’s privacy.
The “hood” contributes to improving acoustics thanks to its curved upholstered panels. The shape reflects sound back to the person making a call, causing them to naturally lower their voice, while the padded upholstery helps to dampen the room’s reverberation.
Improving acoustics in public spaces is undoubtedly an important function. However, Lapso adds one more unique feature. It is also a vertical hammock where people can lean back and take some time out during a trip or reflect quietly in the middle of a bustling office.
