EXPO MARK II SOUND CHAIR' BY GRANT AND MARY FEATHERSTON
The Expo '67 talking chair was designed for the Australian Pavilion at Expo '67 held in Montreal, Canada. A separate headpiece component attached to the inside of the chair contained earphones through which taped programs on various aspects of Australian life were played. A slightly modified design which integrated the headphones into the head bolster was released onto the Australian market as the Expo mark II sound chair in 1967.
