The birth of breaking up the mass tourism air traffic cabin into the first, business and economy
classes was in the 50s. Since this time the first and business class got a lot of new
technical developments. But the design of the economy class get lost due to the exclusively
interest of the designers to improve more innovations only to the higher classes.
The focus of the airlines is only the efficiency, to put more and more passengers into one
cabin. The seat comfort and passengers wellbeing will be left befind. This point is going to be a serious problem, to stay in an uncomfortable and unhealthy seat for more than 5 hours.
The thrombosis, also known as economy class syndrome should not be underestimated.
All this aspects were motivation enough to create a new innovation in this field.
The main focus of this concept were the ergonomical studies. The resultant modular design, regarding the securtiy aspects was inspired by the Lounge Chair of Charles & Ray Eames, which is the perfect association for high comfort. So the following keywords like ergonomics, emotion, comfort, safety and physical health are the base for this emotive design.
Studio Gavari‘s new air travel concept is focused mainly on revolutionizing the way
people experience their journey in economy class on longhaul flights. After taking seat, the passenger can activate the modular body adjustment with setting his measurements into the ‚smart control’.
The head- and backrest, the integrated pneumatic air cushion, as well as the seat base are adapting automatically. The inclination of the backrest and the turning out of the footrest can be adjust synchronously.
Perfect lumbar support is provided due to a new innovative backrest joint, which has the same pivot point like the hip joint of the passenger. The backrest is turning to the comfort position with no displacement to the body.
The traytable can be pulled out from the armrest. The screen is also adjustable and shows the content in portrait or landscape orientation with every turn. The passenger has the possibility using USB or FireWire to watch all his vacation memories to enjoy the flying time.
