New Aircraft Interiors for United Airlines

14/09/15

Our new aircraft interiors for United Airlines’ domestic fleet were launched last week at the airline’s headquarters in Chicago, with a focus on the new First Class seat.

Developed with input from customers whom the airline invited to test seat prototypes, the custom seat features several elements to improve the passenger experience such as all leather seat covers, tray table with integrated tablet holder, articulated seat pad for greater comfort and additional in-seat storage.

The new aircraft interiors debut this week on one of United Airlines’ A319, with retrofits on A319s, A320s and many Boeing 737s and 757s through 2016.

Chaos Contained

12/05/15

We’re delighted to host “Chaos Contained, Paintings by Boo Mitford”, the first solo exhibition by the London-based contemporary artist. The exhibition showcases the artist’s investigation into the tumultuous nature of paint and the personality of colour over the period 2005 – 2015.

Mitford explains: ‘Paint has every inclination to be unpredictable — it’s a bit of a wild child. Through fine adjustments of volume, situation and strength, I can create a vivid painting of oscillating colour. It is the nature of paint to want to escape. Sometimes colours combine harmoniously, sometimes they fight like hell. The capricious nature of paint is what fascinates me, and what I strive to explore through my work.’

Chaos Contained runs from 15 May to 12 June, Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm, excluding Bank Holidays.

Described as the Oscars of the aviation industry, the award, which we won in the Industrial Design and Visionary Concepts category, is testament to the great partnership that we have built with the Brazilian manufacturer over many years.

We worked closely with Embraer’s engineering team to overhaul the aircraft interiors of the new generation short haul fleet.

A big congratulations to the whole team!

Seat pitch has been increased to 87 inches (up 12 inches from the previous suite), and the armrests can fold flat, increasing seat width to 22.5 inches.
