Design duo Cristiana Giopato and Christopher Coombes have created a new helicopter interior for AgustaWestland, a multinational helicopter design and manufacturing company. A unique concept that breaks the boundaries of the standard VIP helicopter flight experience.
“The concept ‘A Stratified World’ sees different aspects of design layered on top of one another, from interior architecture to the adaptation of home appliances such as LG’s curved led TV technology to create an immersive total flying experience.” says Giopato & Coombes.
“Their wide-reaching research saw the application of proxemics, noise-absorbing paint, the construction of full-scale ergonomic mock-ups, carbon fibre armchairs inspired by the Ducati Monster, custom designed headphones and important innovations such as the use of airbags to protect luggage in the hold.”
“The design began with the reorganization of architectural shadow lines and windows as an effort to clean away unnecessary visual confusion, closely following by an integrated wall composite that combines led lighting, noise-reducing nano-materials and fibreglass beta-cloth.”
