Why do we accept being told how to sit? Stimulated by six friends finding six different positions of comfort during a picnic in a park, LandSpace disposes of the dictatorship of modern furniture controlling how we sit and interact. Six different types of resting positions are intended and the remaining transitional elements produce a seating system that demands interpretation and interaction rather than defaulting to the existing. 
LandSpace is constructed using over 300 pieces of 100 per cent recycled nine millimetre fluted cardboard. 
They are interlocked and mechanically attached to create a 20 square metre piece of furniture that has been tested to hold over 25 people.
