In the past we have often talked about airports, airport design and airport furniture.
And not just because we want to demonstrate how much we travel and how often we are in airports.
But because we find it just as important that high-quality furniture is available in public spaces as in the home or office.
If you think your office furniture is well used – imagine the stress your average airport chair is put under.
From March 23rd until March 25th Europe’s largest airport terminal conference and exhibition will take place at Brussels Airport.
At Passanger Terminal EXPO senior airport planners, managers and designers will discuss in a series of conferences how to improve airports and the airport experience, while in the exhibition area over 150 producers will present their products- as the organisers put it- “from baggage handling and security to passenger check-in and seating solutions”
And, needless to say (smow) has all four areas covered.
Vitra provide a range of elegant public seating solutions from Eames plastic chairs, over designs from Maarten van Severen and on to the dedicated “Airline” range by Sir Norman Foster.
While for all desks and shop solutions – be it check in desks, security or display cabinets – the majestically flexible system USM Haller meets every challenge; and can also be integrated with baggage conveyor belts
And for baggage handling… there’s always the M 4 R from Tecta
