This dissertation is carried out as part of the MSc in Strategic Product Design at the International Hellenic University. The theme concerns the field of space design, approaching products as an ensemble which represents the space . It is inspired by main needs of modern people, such as the need of relaxation, mental clarity and internal balance, which are difficult to be covered nowadays due to the modern way of living. My intention to design such a space was to meet these needs, and I believe that this is achieved through its anthropocentric design . Its main body is consisted by both theoretical and design part , so both research and development was carried out . The final conceptual space design uses elements of various design fields, like ergonomics and anthropometrics, semantics and aesthetics, sensory and interactive design, user experience and user interface design. Despite its diverse design, it could be regarded as a simple construction with realist implementation possibility. (EN)
