Gilbert Tourville, founder of Trinity Hammocks, Longueuil, QuÃ©bec, Canada, has a taste for adventure, working as a ship’s pilot and a successful restauranteur before launching his new award-winning hammock designs in 2012. The Trinity hammock design challenges the notion that relaxation and socialization are mutually exclusive experiences. The Eternity and Infinity products configure three hammocks around a small hanging table, allowing users to (as the company slogan says) “Relax. Enjoy. Share.”
The Eternity has a traditional gazebo shape, with a hexagonal roof made of Z-net® Raschel-knitted high-density polyethylene shade fabric distributed by BVZ (Asia)® Ltd., Hong Kong; hammocks of popular
Sunbrella® fabrics; stainless steel tubular structures and teak. The Infinity model, which won the 2013
Innovation Award for outdoor furniture at the Hospitality Design Exposition and Conference in Las Vegas, has a graceful frame made of circles leaning toward one another. “It explores the endlessly winding symbol of infinity in an ethereal dynamic,” says Tourville. Fabrics are mold- and mildew-resistant, provide UV protection and are tested in rugged marine environments. For complete information, visit www.trinityhammocks.com.
