Bloom is a different approach to the traditional airport seating designs and is a multipurpose furniture piece designed for airside airport spaces. The individual seating design, the luggage tracking capabilities, and app interface system separate Bloom from the existing market solutions.
Airports must be in a constant state of change to keep up with passenger demands and offer new and exciting experiences.
The Aim of the project is to explore the factors and influences that both directly and indirectly affect a passengers experience and emotions within the airport airside ecosystem surrounding discretionary activities. This investigation was to impact a design journey that focused on improving passenger experiences to create a more enjoyable air travel ecosystem as a whole.
The initial design work developed into five idea generation areas as to how the airport airside ecosystem could be changed and adjusted to better meet the growing needs of airport facilities in these unprecedented times. The five areas for improvement were: personal luggage products, airside furniture design, adjustable large-scale interactive furniture as exhibitions, personal protective equipment for travel, and personal space creation devices.
