Lightyear Cafe Chair

The Lightyear cafe chair is the result of applying design philosophy research to a functional object. The research explored how design creates a sense of value, meaning and quality.

The aesthetic style aims to express similar humanist values to the space age style of the 1960’s, an excitement for humanitiy’s future. The outcome was reached through drawing, model making and CAD with intermittent feedback from a range of people with varying interest in the outcome.
