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.

New Aircraft Interiors for United Airlines


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.
