“With the exception of the ropes, which are made from polypropylene for greater resistance to bad weather and exposure to the sun, the swings are made entirely from natural materials. We use chestnut or locust tree trunks cut to about one metre in length, so that even two people can sit comfortably on the swing. Then we cut the logs in half lengthwise, plane and smooth the flat side and make holes for the strings. At this point, the base of the swing is ready to be carved with our Swing the World inscription using the pyrography machine, then painted and lacquered to make the wood resistant. I take care of the construction while Elisa, who also created the logo that we thought up and designed together, takes care of the decoration”. Once the swing is ready, it needs a site. With a focus on the theme of sustainability, these two young people from Ticino choose places that boast breath-taking views, where the swings can frame photos and happy memories and can also be reached on foot or by bike to avoid traffic and encourage people of all ages to enjoy a moment in nature.
