10% Weight Reduction

After re-evaluating the entire seat structure, three main changes were creatively implemented in order to reduce the weight:
– Hydra-lock redesign
– Innovative seat suspension system
– New, lighter, and stronger materials

Common Part Design

Seat frame structure was designed to have common parts across multiple platforms. This created more living space for the passengers, and also resulted in big savings when undergoing certification.

IFE Space Increase

Implementation of weight reducing and common part features created extra room for IFE package, and enabled our team to come up with a very efficient wire management system.
