A zome is a structure that features unusual geometric properties, combining aspects of a dome with the shapes of a polygon known as a zonohedron.

The structural engineer Richie Duncan invented the Kodama Zome, the world’s first hanging zome. Traditionally, they’re located on the ground, but Kodama Zomes are similar to hammocks, they’re a hanging space. These structures can be hung from trees or stands, which allows them to suspend freely above the ground or even above water.  Zomes are built by a team in Oregon and they can be used not only for relaxation, but also for yoga or for hanging out with friends in nature. The name comes from Kodama, which are tree spirits that can be found in Japanese folklore.
