Crystal Cabin Awards 2020: the most innovative aircraft interiors projects
Added on Wed February 26th, 2020
Crystal Cabin Awards is the only international award for innovative aircraft cabin products and concepts. An international judging panel made up of more than 20 academics, engineers, representatives of aircraft manufacturers and airlines along with specialist journalists evaluates the individual submissions and nominate three finalists in each category. The finalists will be rewarded next March at Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany.
Some examples of innovative ideas presented:
- Engineering company Heinkel Group presents its “Flex Lounge” proposal, which suggests a flexible configuration for seat rows in economy cabins. Post take-off, flight attendants can rearrange the rows.
- Delft University of Technology has submitted a design for collapsible, flexible seats that turn into flat beds in a bunk-bed style design, for maximum space efficiency.
- Ciara Crawford’s ROW1 seat envisages an airplane seat where the wheelchair is fitted seamlessly into the row, allowing for a more accessible airplane experience.
- “Airspace Cabin Vision 2030” will offer more flexible sleeping and seating configurations and a “digitally enabled environment”.
- German company AERQ also proposes using technology in an innovative way, allowing the cabin class dividers to double up as an OLED information screen, while Moment’s “Flymingo Next” concept is designed to help crew members do their jobs efficiently.
- PriestmanGoode submitted a meal tray called Zero, aiming to reduce the amount of weight and plastic waste created through meal service on flights.
