Artist Greg Frehr creates these playful dining tables that replace ordinary chairs with swings. SwingTables have an outdoor-safe powder-coated steel frame, a wooden tabletop, and wooden swings to sit on. They come in 2-seat, 4-seat, 6-seat, and 8-seat variants and disassemble into sections for shipping. Cushioned seats are available.
Now that Colin Furze built himself a new lawnmower, he wanted a swing set he didn’t have to move every time he cut the grass. So he set about building a highly over-engineered, modular swing that’s held in place with steel beams set under the top soil. It’s a versatile structure, but not as imprssive as his 360º mega swing.
A few years back, a group of makers created a swing that was designed to pour water down, while keeping its users relatively dry. 6-year-old Seren decided she wanted the exact opposite, and the guys at Kids Invent Stuff obliged her with this crazy swing that keeps you cool and soaked on a hot summer day.
