When a person closes their eyes, brainwaves function differently. Using this principle, designer Lucas Maassen created the brainwave couch.

The brainwave couch is crafted by mapping the first 3-seconds someone has their eyes closed and then creating a couch design based on their brainwaves. The result is a cool—albeit slightly awkward—couch design that blends brain function and functionality.

The unique brainwave couch is an interesting way to combine scientific discussion with design.

Implications - This particular combination of science and design continues to be an essential part of the modern art world. Those looking to future their knowledge of both of these fields should definitely check out this gallery of mind-mapped sofas created by none other than Lucas Maassen; they will blow your mind!
