Good Night Sleep in Shibuya

Shibuya is a region in Japan, where bars, clubs, and drinkers are centered. Inspired by photos of the drunk sleepers in various weird postures and places, I designed this set of ergonomic chairs in Rhino so that the worn-out drinkers can have a “Good Night Sleep in Shibuya.”

I also explored different ways to define spaces using dots, lines, curved surfaces, and forms.


“Feeling a bit Waved”

“It’s just bubbly water”

The empty chairs are put into the setting of a metro that drunk sleepers often appear. This visualizes invisible traces left behind by the sleepers and the invisible social pressure of Asian drinking culture.
