High-density seat for Asian LCCs wins design award


Design consultancy, Mormedi has won the Excellent Product Design Award in the Aviation, Maritime, and Railway category at the German Design Awards 2019 for the Super Eco Seat, designed as part of the Future Cabin for the Asian Market (FUCAM) consortium.

The design of the Super Eco Seat is optimised for high-density cabins, with the fast-growing Asian low-cost carriers identified as a key market. The seat is designed as part of a high-density main deck cabin, which is complemented by a lower deck ‘Air Lounge’ and ‘Experience Space’, utilising an interchangeable cargo container system. The lower deck offers services and entertainment options on a pay-per-use basis.

Jaime Moreno, founder and CEO of Mormedi, said, “We are proud that the Super Eco Seat has been recognised in one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world. This new concept is needed to help make airline travel accessible for a huge new emerging passenger segment in Asia. By combining the Super Eco Seat with new in-cabin spaces, air travel can be not only economically feasible, but more enjoyable from the passenger perspective.”
