Featured in Dub Era Music Blog‘s article: “ENO Brings the Lotus Lounge to Aura Music & Arts Festival”  by Chris Tart.     The Lotus Lounge, visible at AURA Music & Arts Festival 2014, is a highly capable relaxation epicenter. Housing a DJ booth at the center and a 5000 watt sound system, it is equipped with ambient lighting with the option to add a professional lighting system. An ongoing design, The Lotus Lounge is the brainchild of Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) CEO Peter Pinholster, who I spoke with about the design over the phone. He started “bending aluminum pipe” because of a desire to give back to the community that has loyally supported ENO in the past. “I did it mainly because I wanted to give a little bit more at these festivals and add a little more to the environment … be more proactive and involved and provide relaxation during the event,” Pinholster says.     Design and Implementation The lotus flower, an iconic symbol of life and beauty, is a personal favorite of Pinholster’s and the basis for the Lotus Lounge structure.

Representing the first of its kind, ENO’s Lotus Lounge wowed audiences and impressed organizers in its first organized event. Asheville, NC, July 2, 2013 – The highly anticipated Lotus Lounge, Eagles Nest Outfitter’s original entertainment sculpture aimed at the festival scene, received a hugely successful welcome during its debut at Highland Brewing Company’s ‘The Meadow’ on June 21, 2013. The Lotus Lounge, ENO’s first mobile entertainment product, featured a laser light show, visual projection art, fire spinning, dancing, ENO hammocks and Loungers, and music from Asheville based DJ Marley Carroll and PUSH/PULL. Highland Brewing Company, the hosts of the party, hold regular events at The Meadow – their onsite event space – but were impressed by the magnitude of the Lotus Lounge debut. “We have really good crowds out here, and we’ve done a few festivals but we typically don’t do those after 11 p.m.,” said Grant DaSantos, Highland Brewing Company’s Hospitality and Tasting Room Manager. “This was the first thing we did that was DJ-oriented with crazy lights, and it looked really neat. It was really neat for anyone who didn’t know what was going on.” Representing the first of its kind, the Lotus Lounge boasted over 100 hammocks...
ENO breaks onto the festival scene with innovative festival entertainment. ASHEVILLE, N.C., Nov. 30,2012 – The creative minds from Eagles Nest Outfitters, industry leading hammock designers, launch the newest piece of festival entertainment – the Lotus Lounge. The Lotus Lounge, modeled after the iconic Lotus flower, is a breathtaking, silver, circular sculpture aimed at the festival scene. ENO has been present on the festival circuit for over ten years, but the Lounge is their debut into the entertainment market. “It’s a mobile concept offering something for people at different functions to be involved with the lifestyle and not just buying a hammock,” said Pete Pinholster, co-owner and president of ENO and the brains behind the cutting-edge structure. Focused on being an area of relaxation, the curved design mimics the shape of a hammock, and the framework is able to hang a combination of ENO Hammocks and Loungers, with the possibility to add a large tent, a 5000 watt sound system and a professional lighting. The center of the Lounge is outfitted with a unique and innovative DJ booth. Aside from the hammock-hanging-stations in the Lounge, the package includes up to 25 three-way hammock stands named Enopods, patent pending. The Enopod...
