United Polaris Launch


Our new aircraft interiors for United Airlines were launched today at an impressive ceremony at New York City’s Gotham Hall.

The focus of our designs for the new international fleet is the United Polaris premium lounge and cabin, an exclusive offer tailored to United business class passengers. Following over 12,000 hours of research and passenger consultations led by United, the new United Polaris cabin is designed to meet the needs of busy, hard-working business travellers, and provides them with a highly functional, intuitive suite, and a serene lounge and cabin experience that will leave them feeling rested and refreshed.

PG. becomes employee owned company


On 1 April 2016, PriestmanGoode became an employee owned company. The studio is now majority owned by an Employee Ownership Trust.

Paul Priestman explains: “Whilst the other directors and myself are remaining at the helm of the studio, we wanted to put things in place to ensure the legacy of the company we have built. This is a commitment to our team, a great number of whom have been with us for many years and have been instrumental to our success. We wanted to empower them, share in the success that we’ve built and make everyone at PriestmanGoode feel invested in our continued growth.

Nigel Goode adds “As designers, our work is about innovation, about being progressive, about future proofing, helping our clients devise long-term strategies for success. Transitioning into an employee-owned company is us applying those same principles to our own company. It’s a collaborative and long-term approach to business decisions and will ensure that we keep growing in a sustained manner”

A Milestone in Aviation Design


Last week, we attended the roll out ceremony of the new E2 commercial jet by Embraer, for which we have designed the aircraft interiors.

The roll out is an important milestone in the development of the new aircraft, which is due to start flying in 2018. We will be working closely with Embraer’s engineering team over the next two years to implement our aircraft interior design, which has already been lauded as a game-changer in the manufacture of narrow body aircraft.

The Saturday Club


We have long been supporters of institutions that work with young students to nurture their creative skills and bridge links between education and design practice. One such institution is the Sorrell Foundation, which runs the National Art & Design Saturday Club, offering young students the opportunity to attend free art and design classes, and to attend masterclasses with leading creative practitioners.

We were delighted to once again host a masterclass at our studio in Central London studio, where we ran a workshop on the future of space travel.
