New Aircraft Interiors for Korean Air


Our latest aircraft interiors for Korean Air have just been released. Our designs for the new Prestige suite will debut on the airline’s A330-300.

The designs are part of a long term programme we are working on with the airline. The new suite optimises space and comfort, with privacy available at the touch of a button.

The new seats and layout allow each passenger to have direct aisle access. 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. The suite also features an ottoman, traditionally a First Class cabin feature.

A new cruise industry first


We have launched a new innovation in the passenger shipping industry with our Virtual Balcony for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

The Virtual Balcony, which features on the company’s latest ship, Quantum of the Seas, solves the age old problem that inside staterooms have no windows or balconies, when every passenger wants a cabin with a view. The Virtual Balcony solves this by giving you real time views from the ship, with the advantage that you can choose whichever direction you look out to. The industry response has been very positive, with the leading media commentator, Cruise Critic, stating ‘the virtual balcony is more than just a novelty; it truly enhances the interior cabin experience’.
