DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Leira Lounge Chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lounge Chair

INSPIRATION:
Leira was inspired by the Chinese Zen chair, which has a large sitting surface that allows people to put the whole body into the chair. The sitting surface is even big enough for meditation. Chinese Zen chair creates a harmonious and peaceful artistic conception, and deeply inspired me to design and manufacture the Leira lounge chair.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This design project targets the Millennial, the soon-to-be leading generation of consumers. They are full of vitality, creativity, and imagination. For those that live in a fast-paced urban city, they often are swamped by their social and work lives. This chair is dedicated for those who want to treat themselves with high-quality personal time at home.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Leira is a dedicated lounge chair only for you. The spacious interior space allows people to change the position however they want. Offering a wider interior for ample seating space, the unique ergonomic backrest form provides the most comfortable support. The wooden frame is wrapped in the soft leather. Daring, organic lines, and delicate stitching design make Leira more unique and exquisite.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Sept 2016 in Pasadena and finished in Dec 2016. The full-scale prototype has been produced.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I conducted several different ways of research for this project. First of all, I performed an in-depth research on my targeted market to understand their way of living and try to bring that into my design. I not only interviewed more than 100 individuals but also conducted different surveys online for more insights. After I had decided my design concept for this project, I went through different kinds of literature and documentaries for inspirations. I came across the concept of Chinese Zen Chair, which contributed heavily to the foundation of my design. I also spent countless hours researching ergonomics to come up with the best backrest shape possible by reading and interviewing professionals.

CHALLENGE:
The main creative challenge for this project was to find a way to present my design language and find the balance between my design and actual manufacturing process.
