The Light-room is a conceptual design for an interior consisting of light-weight furniture. All pieces are designed by Studio Geenen with no other goal than creating products as light as possible. Lightness has a lot of advantages, for example reducing energy consumption during production and transport. And of course it minimizes the amount of materials used in these products. The pieces of furniture in this room all together weigh 7.5 kg (16.5 pounds), which is normally the weight of a single chair. Each individual product in the room has been developed as far as the prototyping stage, and are ready to be produced. The image shown is taken of a set of high quality scale-models (1:6).
