nelly ben hayoun: the soyuz chair
a collaboration of living room physics with the astronaut jean-pierre haigneré who lifted off twice from earth in the soyuz rocket, the soyuz chair designed by nelly ben hayoun, is a living-room chair which reproduces the three stages of that rocket launch. recline into the launch position, face the sky, put on your headset and use the control panel to select your mode. the chair comes with a remote for you to either choose the full 10 minute lift-off experience with three stages of intensity, or just the last 240 seconds – the most extreme stage of the journey.
