Having experienced immense stress at work during his corporate days, the founder of Airmocks took a break from work for a beach vacation in Bali. While lying in a hammock one day, he felt an immense sense of tranquillity and thought that it would be perfect if his family and friends could experience it too. He has since popularized the concept of freestanding hammocks in Singapore and established a brand that constantly encourages everyone to take a step back to savour a moment of tranquillity and contemplation.
