SkyFloat | The first full-size & foldable hammock chair

Have a snug place wherever you are. At the end of a great day out with friends somewhere. On the bike, in the woods, on the boat. SkyFloat is ready to accompany you in the great outdoors. Foldable, featherlight and durable enough to withstand any adventure.

SkyFloat benefits at a glance.

30 seconds to total relaxation.

The unique design of SkyFloat focuses on a straightforward and mobile usability. Height-adjustable by a tree-friendly daisy chain it is attached to your favorite place in seconds.

Perfect sitting comfort & plenty of space.

What you can't see, but you'll definitely feel: The seat shell of SkyFloat is much more than just a piece of cloth. Its unique shape supports your back and provides a comfortable head support. We have worked hard to achieve this without external aids such as ropes or rods. Upright, crosswise or with straight legs - SkyFloat supports a broad range of sitting postures without fatigue. SkyFloat features a pleasent and breathable seat shell with an extraordinary seating length of 190 cm/75 inch. Tailored from fast-drying, combed and high-strength stretchable nylon fabric. It perfectly adapts to your body and your sitting position. Even when you sweat, you won't stick to the fabric. It feels warm and natural on your skin.

Smart engineering, clever details.

We have developed a compact system of smart components for you, not just a bunch of parts: After first assembly, all components are permanently joined. You'll never loose a part, you'll never ask yourself, "(Wo)man, how did that work?" SkyFloat is truly up and ready to go in very short time. Furthermore, all components are designed to withstand much more than you will ever demand.

SkyFloat is also a great companion for your home or office. Bring style and cosiness to your favourite place or create a colorful and inspiring workspace so that you and your colleagues feel at home. For indoor use we offer a special, continuously adjustable belt set for ceiling mounting. You can choose it in our after-campaign shop.

Available colors

SkyFloat is available in different colours. Simply choose your favorite color after the campaign in our survey.

Reduce. Re-use. Recycle.

About us.

Element5 is a group of product creators, bikers and outdoor enthusiasts. Our team consists of experienced designers, craftsmen and technicians. Element5 is our second brand project which starts with the SkyFloat, a first step stone for a growing range of outdoor- and watersports products.
In 2016 we´ve created a bicycle safety accessory with thousands of satisfied customers until today. On top we received several sought-after industrial awards: ISPO BRANDNEW FINALIST 2017, EUROBIKE WINNER 2017 and the GERMAN DESIGN AWARD WINNER 2018. We believe in the SkyFloat outdoor chair and with your valued support we are ready to launch this wonderful and first product of Element5.

SkyFloat is thoroughly developed after two years, tested and ready for production. All parts we show in this campaign are already finished products from a pre-production. With your help we want to make the SkyFloat a viable and affordable product for outdoor enthusiasts around the world. That is why we need your support in financing a first series. And, of course, production and dispatch of your pledges. We like to point out, taht SkyFloat is in the process of filing several patent-pending applications für its seat shell cut, its general appearance and its suspension system.

Why Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is certainly the most reliable platform that brings us together! As a small company, we have the opportunity here to find a large, experienced and interested audience. All processes are transparent and Kickstarter works permanently to offer all participants a fair base for a common creation. It would never be possible to do all these things without this meeting place.

Risks and challenges

Since we have started with our product designs, we have served thousands of customers world-wide and do it day by day. So we have the experience to serve you - our valued future customers - fast and reliable with our new product. SkyFloat is engineered and designed in Germany. For the production of our seat shell and the suspension belts we have chosen one of the most renowned manufacturers in the Far East. We have been working with this team since the first day of our development in 2015. We have the certainty of finally getting exactly the product we designed and have offered to you.
Honestly, it has to be said that there can be delays in any production. But be sure that this is not the first time we have done this and that we can - not without pride - claim to be really reliable creators. So we do not see any direct risks or challenges. In general we are committed to do everything in our power to deliver your SkyFloat in time and keep you informed about all further processes in regular campaign updates.
