Expliseat Titanium Seat NEO
Expliseat, specialising in ultra-light aircraft seats for passengers, has teamed up with Peugeot Design Lab to design a new generation of seats: the Titanium Seat NEO. This project represents the opportunity to combine the best practices of two industrial worlds. The technical expertise of aeronautical engineers, conveyed through an ultra-light aircraft seat, made of titanium and carbon, and the expertise of automobile ergonomists and upholsterers have enabled us to design a product that neither of us could have created alone.
The team of experts managed by Peugeot Design Lab has taken on the challenge of designing an aircraft seat with 2 to 4 places and offering passengers optimal comfort, whilst complying with the weight, architectural and maintenance restrictions specific to the aeronautics industry. Ergonomists, upholsterers, colour and material designers, modellers and manufacturing specialists have also created a model of the seat, whilst maintaining constant contact with Expliseat engineers.
As a result of the partnership between Peugeot Design Lab and Expliseat, the design of the Titanium Seat NEO contributes to the wellbeing of passengers, thanks to a number of innovations such as; individual spaces instead of a bench seat, lateral lower-back, pelvis and thigh support in order to keep passengers in place, without impeding their free movement, foam seating to make long-haul flights more comfortable, larger tray-tables with touch-screen tablet media support, giant storage pouches, etc...
It was unveiled on 5th April 2016 at the "Aircraft Interiors Expo" trade show in Hamburg.
