WEB EXTRA: Taking Flight: Sitting Pretty at LAX

Architect Matt Gagnon conceived a series of over-scale lounge chairs for a temporary installation at LAX. Image courtesy Matt Gagnon Studio.Comfort and airports rarely go hand in hand for the general run of traveler. And don't even think about relaxation. Dashing from the car, to check-in, to security and to the gate, you wind up with a chair, if you're lucky. Same goes after you de-plane. And waiting for ground transportation? It's no picnic either. Recently, Los Angeles World Airports asked architect Matt Gagnon to propose a temporary installation for an underused courtyard space at LAX. His novel take transforms that last experience—taking the wait and making a moment of repose, even pleasure. A run of over-scale lounge chairs—think classic backyard loungers—reimagined with nylon strapping, would provide a comfortable space for those minutes before you hop on the shuttle. Illuminattion installed below the seats would add an ambiant lighting effect and make them inviting places to stop even at night.
