Lovebox: Lift Off!
July 7, 2010 by Zoe
Fancy some space tourism? Designer Nelly Ben Hayoun brings us her Soyuz Chair, developed in consultation with astronaut Jean-Pierre Haignere and sound artist Tim Olden and based on the Soviet spacecraft Soyuz.
Lucky volunteers won’t actually go into orbit, but the experience is nothing less than out of this world. Planetary space scientist Sheila Kanani will also be on hand to tell us how we get into space, what other planets will be like, and what it’s going to be like getting there – before you get to experience the sensation for yourself.
At the Lovebox weekend music festival in London’s Victoria Park, July 17 and 18, 12 to 4pm.
