Materials

Heirloom-quality materials make SwingLab an investment that will last. Every SwingLab modular swing is crafted from rust-free aluminum and hardwearing cypress, which is naturally resistant to damage from the elements and insects. The swings are suspended from galvanized steel aircraft cable.

Craftsmanship

Manufacturing and craftsmanship are often thought of as being at odds, but Andy Hilton, the creator of SwingLab, doesn't always see it that way. For him, SwingLab is fusion of the two disciplines—and offers his customers the best of both worlds. He explains: "SwingLab is the refinement of a single design, but its production is rooted in a tradition of craftsmanship, not mass production." Andy constructs each swing by hand in his Jackson, Mississippi, studio with all the attention you would expect from an American craftsman. In fact, much of his career has involved making commissioned, one-of-a-kind pieces. "It's a process that requires a great deal of attention, because each piece presents its own unique challenges," says Andy. "The advantage of a product over commissioned pieces is that it gives the designer a chance to make each unit better and better over time, as well as learn to use materials more efficiently. With SwingLab, I approach each swing's construction with the attention of a commission, and the efficiency and accuracy of a product."
