A New Passenger Seat Design
Blue Sky Designers have been involved in the development of these exciting seats based on the cantilever principle.
We all hate it when someone reclines their seat into our space. Blue Sky's seats don't have to. Their unique internal recline within a fixed outer shell and their clever geometry provide all the space and comfort you need to stretch out without bothering anyone around you, whilst their light carbon construction reduces fuel burn and CO² emissions, contributing to a cleaner environment.
A basic seat weighs just 6kg per pax. Cantilever architecture provides more space than is possible with any other design. With a fixed back there is no need to invade the space of passengers behind. Internal articulation offers unrivalled access to under seat space, providing full lumbar support with a generous recline.
Uncomfortable overnight flights are common: neck pain, numbness in the shoulders and buttocks, pins and needles in the feet, perhaps even a ‘dead leg’.
When we are tired we try to lie flat. In Economy, we can’t do that, so we contort ourselves into impossible positions. The design challenge was how to 'get a quart into a pint pot' and create more space and comfort within the existing envelope. This required a step change to conventional seat architecture.
