PROJECT Developed  IN COLLABORATION WITH THE ASTRONAUT JEAN PIERRE HAIGNERE WHO LIFT OFF TWICE WITH THE SOYUZ ROCKET

Soyuz was the human spaceflight programme initiated by the Soviet Union in the early 1960s. It was originally part of the Moon-landing programme intended to put a Soviet cosmonaut on the Moon. It included the Soyuz rockets, which were to launch the Soyuz Spacecraft: the first of these flew in 1966.

TV on, an astronaut, an interview, a launch, a chair
…
You, in the living room.
Space tourism is a great success .The possibilities of weightlessness, to feel the thrill of liftoff and to finally meet the unknown doesn’t have to be a fantasy anymore. But space tourism is still just for the few.

The Soyuz chair accurately reproduces the 3 stages of the Soyuz rocket launch. Reclining into launch position, you face the sky, put on your headset, and use the control panel to select your mode; just a single stage, or the full lift off experience.
