Waiting areas and public spaces are mostly uncomfortable, completely anonymized "non spaces." The TOURIST seating collection addresses this problem: it is both furniture and sculpture.
The seating collection consists of three versions, each with its own shape and color: mint green, light blue and apricot. Three additional seating options are created by rotating the objects 180 °.
TOURIST was created in an interdisciplinary team of communication and product designers. Sophia Stoewer, Mathias Lempart and Hauke Unterburg were initially inspired by the random shape of chewed gum. They scanned them using a 3D scanner and modeled them according to the application areas.
The project is part of the seminar “MAGIS – Nomadic Cafe,” a cooperation project with the Italian furniture maker MAGIS.
