Bus Seats

Most of us use public transport, and many do so several times a day, and yet how often do we look to appreciate the pattern on our seats?

Designing seats for transportation has been an interest of mine for some time and recently, having taken inspiration from mid-century designs, I have decided to create some more patterns suitable for transportation.

As a vehicle (pun intended) for these designs I have created the interior of the bus with a row of seats stretching lengthways since these show patterns at their best. This first design is based on mid-century colouring and it uses the type of motifs that might have been available in the early 1950s when patterns were just beginning their renaissance after the Second World War.

The pattern is used at quite a small scale and has a strong horizontal component which takes the eye along the length of the seats while the red motif adds a splash of colour and daring to the design. The seats are on a transportation device which is intended to be used for short journeys and so the pattern is a lively and spontaneous design to help the traveller stay energised and enjoy the short journey.

You can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
