PGxRCA — Future Materials


We’re pleased to present PG x RCA — Future Materials, currently on show at our Central London headquarters. This exhibition charts the work of 14 students from the Royal College of Art who were set a brief by PriestmanGoode to develop innovative material palettes for aircraft interiors in 2050.

The brief, set by our studio’s Colour, Materials and Finishes team, asked students to consider how bespoke textile and surface design could shape a responsible cabin of the future, and to deliver materials that offer additional benefits to well-being, health and hygiene, privacy as well as cleaning and maintenance.

The results cover a vast spectrum of observations, ideas and methods, and bring a new and fresh perspective to the possibilities in future air travel environments.

Space Tourism with The Saturday Club


We were honoured to be invited once again to do a Masterclass for The National Science and Engineering Saturday Club, which enables students in secondary schools to develop their creative skills. Our Masterclass this year was with Kingston University’s Club. Our brief to them was to create a design and brand identity for a spacecraft based on their destination planet. Taking the properties of each planet into consideration, the students developed a palette of colours, materials and finishes for application in spacecraft interiors. Each group then presented their concept to the rest of the students.

We have a long-standing history of holding Masterclasses with The Saturday Club and are pleased to be supporting them by building bridges between education and industry.

Qatar Airways Launches New Qsuite


It’s been nearly ten years since we first started collaborating with Qatar Airways. In that time, the airline has been a pivotal driving force in elevating passenger experience in air travel. We’re delighted to see our latest programme with them revealed to the public for the first time today.

Qatar Airways’ new Business Class concept, featuring the Qsuite is set to redefine business class travel. The Qsuite is the first Business class suite in the world to have a double bed. In addition, centre quads allow groups of four to sit together, providing the first truly social at seat experience in a Business Class cabin. Each suite can also become a private individual space thanks to fully closing doors and privacy panels on every side.

Happy Chinese New Year
