Not everyone knows that Peugeot can offer customizing design for almost everything in this world. Peugeot Design Lab recently developed a new model of ultra-light aircraft seats for passengers. They teamed up with Expliseat to design a new generation of seats, called Titanium Seat NEO.
Peugeot Design Lab has coordinated a team of automobile experts to create this seat with the highest level of comfort, ergonomics and perceived quality. It will be unveiled on 5th April 2016 at the "Aircraft Interiors Expo" trade show in Hamburg.
In 2013, Expliseat developed the lightest aircraft seats for passengers on the market (4kg), made of titanium and carbon. Since 2014, this seat has been used for economy class seats in Airbus A320s and ATRs for various airline companies. To create and design a new generation of seats, Titanium Seat NEO, Expliseat called upon Peugeot Design Lab’s expertise.
The team of experts managed by the Peugeot Design Lab designed an aircraft seat with 2 to 4 spaces and offering passengers optimal comfort, whilst complying with the weight, architectural and maintenance restrictions specific to the aeronautics industry. Ergonomists, upholsterers, colour and material designers, modellers and manufacturing specialists have also created a model of the seat, whilst maintaining constant contact with Expliseat engineers.
The design of the Titanium Seat NEO contributes to the comfort of passengers, thanks to a number of innovations: individual spaces instead of a bench seat, lateral lower-back, pelvis and thigh support, in order to keep passengers in place, without impeding their free movement, foam seating to make long-haul flights more comfortable, larger tray-tables with touch-screen tablet media support and giant storage pouches.
