The design intent for mobile seats is to encourage social interaction as the void deck is a space in its social sense where itâ€™s â€œoccupied, inhabited, negotiated, controlled and administered by the people in their various capacities as individuals or as formal and informal groupsâ€?. (Eng. 2009) The intervention allows for different configuration depending on each individual and how different groups of users would like to negotiate within the space of the void deck. The intervention is intentionally placed across pathways to obstruct people and manoeuvre them into the void deck and envisioning them to linger within the space. Spacing between these seats are placed a metre apart from columns and is clear from obstructions around the lifts to allow for daily thoroughfare to still occur within the intervention.
