6 students from the Royal College of Art in London have designed a
landscape of concept furniture derived from the statue-like forms of
people sitting, standing or leaning against walls engaged in playing
the PlayStation Portable (PSP). Now at an exhibition at the RCA, the ‘furniture’ is designed for use
specifically when playing the PSP (funny, that). In terms of inspiration, the expo’s site says:

The cocoon-like nature of the furniture is related to the experience of
playing games on the PSP. Initial inspiration came from observing group
play at a barbecue: when still light in the early evening, a group of
players put their coats over their heads to create shade and see the
PSP’s screen better. Despite not being able to see each other at all,
they continued to happily taunt, insult and otherwise interact with
each other as is the norm throughout the course of a game. Later on, we
observed people huddled together during play, adopting statue-like
poses and postures – some sitting, some standing, some leaning –
largely unaware of the party going on around them.
