Simple and fundamental forms and shapes, ergonomic design, proper design to hexagonal form of the shelter were used in designing furniture of this shelter. Knowing users, people who are related to product in the terms of cultural and social perspectives determine a part of seats’ features. In this recognition, traditional group, sexuality, physical and mental abilities, emotional characteristics and social statue of users must be surveyed and studied.
