Crystal Cabin Award 2020/2021 finalists: University


The University category of the Crystal Cabin Awards is the cradle of creative concepts. In a repeat of last year’s success for University of Cincinnati, a student at the USA-based institution has made it to the final, working with Boeing and The Live Well Collaborative to transform the aircraft interior into the ‘Coffee House Cabin’, with a long boardroom table for meetings, productive work – and even the occasional coffee.

Students at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) in Germany are competing in the final with Isotravel, an adapter that makes use of proven ISOFIX technology to allow child car seats to be safely installed in an aircraft seat, without the passenger needing help from crew.

Meanwhile a team of students from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands has combined a hostel with a futuristic aircraft, equipping KLM’s V-shaped ‘Flying V’ concept aircraft with collapsible beds that turn into seats for take-off and landing.
