Japanese firm designs lounge to accommodate smokers

This week, by accident, I discovered a Japanese architecture and interior design firm that has created a design for allowing smokers and non-smokers to lounge together in comfort. The firm is called “nonscale”. Their plan, which can be viewed here, uses pyramid-shaped vents for controlling airflow.

I’m not certain the idea will work in practice. Smoke tends to spread out, not just float up. I wonder if they plan on using quiet fans. Smoking isn’t good for your health, but the habit does spark some interesting design challenges, no?

今週、私はたまたま、喫煙者と非喫煙者が快適で一緒にいられるラウンジの設計を作った日本の建築の会社を見つけた。この会社は「nonscale」と言う。この会社の設計は、こちらで、四角錐の通気口がある。

この設計は実際に効くかと思わない。煙は上だけになく広かって漂う傾向する。この会社は静かな扇風機を使うつもりだかな。喫煙の癖は健康を害すけど、面白い設計の難関を導入するな。
