Exclusive relaxation space in the sky

Recaro business class concept invites passengers to relax and enjoy their journey

Schwaebisch Hall/Hamburg, Germany. Arrive, unwind, enjoy the comfort. Not after the flight in your hotel or home, but during the trip in the business class cabin. Recaro Aircraft Seating interprets the idea of an exclusive relaxation space in the sky with an innovative concept. It will be presented to the public for the first time at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2013 in Hamburg.

“We want our concept seat to trigger reactions at the trade show and spark discussions with our customers on business class options,” says Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “We place high priority on a holistic approach. As supplier of both business and economy class seats, we have many years of experience in the industry. This expertise enables us to look at the entire cabin and design perfectly-coordinated seating environments.”

The new Recaro business class concept meets various requirements: The seat has direct aisle access. It offers excellent living space in a high-density configuration which can be adapted to a variety of standard cabin layouts. “An exclusively designed compartment offers space for stretching out in a relaxed sitting position as well as for undisturbed sleep. Maximum passenger privacy is available by withdrawing into the compartment area facing away from the aisle,” explains Klaus Steinmeyer, Vice President Business Development at Recaro Aircraft Seating. The flat sitting and lying surface is formed by raising the leg rest and extension. A generously proportioned stowage compartment is integrated below the lying surface. Features including IFE, reading lights, stowage areas, dining table and other options can be flexibly configured according to customer specifications.

The design team also placed “visual comfort” at the top of the list for the new Recaro concept. The attractively accented contrast between the compartment’s dark outer surfaces and light interior speaks a global language. Non-reflective materials, clean lines and aesthetic contours emphasize the premium quality of the design. The atmosphere of exclusivity promised by many airlines in elaborately designed airport lounges can be offered in the future to business class passengers in the cabin with the new Recaro concept. A perfect way to invite passengers to come inside, sit back, relax, and enjoy their journey in an aesthetically appealing atmosphere.
