To design for Aliens is a challenge that every production designer faces that ever worked for a science fiction movie with, well, Aliens in the storyline. Or for any writer that pens stories of alien worlds. To design for Aliens can also be an interesting thought experiment for industrial designers who would normally have no doubt that their target group - as diverse as it may be - has one thing in common; they are human.
But what if the next design task is to create a "chair" for someone who doesn't sit down the way humans do? What if the next kitchen utensil is to be designed for someone who can not digest organic matter? Then you design for Aliens. It sure would be interesting.
