YinYang was designed for an airport seating project. Through observing travellers at the airport, I was able to identify a number of unfulfilled needs and design opportunities.
I created a comfortable and multi-utility seating unit, which provides a private and discrete space for travellers as well as secure space for their luggage underneath the table and the seat. The side table and power sockets, as well as an optional top light aim to enhance airport waiting activities for travellers to make their waiting time more worthwhile.
