Airplane travel has never been known for being a showcase of exceptional design talent. When we step inside an airport, we expect to put our visual needs aside in favor of practicality. Therefore, we accept the drab colors, the poor lighting and the cramped spaces as par for the course. Stepping aboard an airplane to find a crystal chandelier hanging from the cockpit’s ceiling would do more than raise an eyebrow or two. This, however, is about to change.
Now, when you travel with Taiwan’s Chine Airlines’ new Boeing 770-300ER, you’ll feel more like you stepped into the latest lounge than an international airplane. The airline just unveiled its new airplane and its interior is designed with class, care and finesse. According to a press release from the airline, the plane’s interior was designed as a “reinterpretation of classic aesthetics through Taiwanese lens” by seeking to meld oriental beauty as well as advances in technology and environmental protection.” The aircraft features a wood grain design with mood lighting throughout the main cabin for a unique and relaxed feel. While you still won’t find a modern crystal chandelier hanging anywhere, this new look is tasteful and classy and lends itself to a new standard in air travel. Additionally, passengers can now literally recline all the way back and lie down while they fly.
Gone are the days when traveling is a chore. This seems like it will bring in an era of people looking forward to flying in comfort and style! To read more, check out Design Trend’s article on the airline.
