ल से Lounge is an installation for the typography conference 'Typoday 2019'. The aim of this installation was to be a place where people could relax in the tea breaks during the conference. The installation also needed to be a point of attraction where people could click pictures with their friends.
Concept sketches and prototypes
The ergonomics of the seat were based on a lounge chair (in the image). The 3D model was made with the necessary details such as the cavities for the seat pads, fillets on the model, etc.
Planning and construction
The material used was 5 ply cardboard of 6mm thickness arranged in a grid of 6 x 6 to make it strong enough to carry the weight of 2 people. The templates were cut with the help of the company - Jayna Packaging Pvt. Ltd. who specialise in making products with corrugated sheets. They also helped us with the technical details of the design and the material.
Volunteers chilling during the exhibition
The installation was used by many conference visitors to take a break or to click pictures with their friends or loved ones.
