LUNARIOUS: Chair design by Rae Abigael Caacbay


For our furniture design 2 class, I turned the classic Greek "Klismos Chair" into a futuristic chair. I now present to you, my first chair design fresh from the moon (but long overdue since this was done a year ago)!

Growing up, I was very fond of watching Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and I wanted to mimic the same futuristic sentimentality of my childhood and translate it through the design itself. Technically, the backrest is high-back to feel the essence of the future with circular design resembling the elliptical shape of the universe in which the space objects orbit.

LUNARIOUS, the name of this chair, was taken from the movie, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. It means terrific; splendid.



The classic Greek Klismos chair was taken to another level as it was turned into a futuristic chair. 


Lunarious is an accent chair designed by Rae Abigael J. Caacbay that is perfect for daily activities such as reading, watching tv, listening to music, relaxing, and even just hanging out & exchanging stories with your friends and loved ones!


*this chair is just a prototype submitted in my Furniture Design 2 class in the University of Santo Tomas. :)))
