Virgin Atlantic teamed up with VW + BS studio to shape a new experience for passengers riding the airline 30 000 feet in the air. The first time the new upper class bar and cabin enchanted its guests was this spring, on a route from London to New York. This new aircraft hospitality space concept was created to encourage social interaction between passengers in an innovative atmosphere built for a plane with the strictest safety regulations. Virgin Atlantic’s New Upper Class Bar And Cabin is the sophisticated result of creative thinking based on giving the design studio free hand to redesign one of Virgin’s planes.
When Virgin Atlantic sums up this projects, they describe it as a mixture of insight into the client’s needs and wishes, creativity and expert engineering. Collaborating with VW+BS Studio meant creating a luxurious experience – the bar was placed at the entrance, welcoming guests to the new flying concept. A futuristic design like this one, influenced by the angled positioning of interior spaces, creates a unique set of social spaces, while the espresso colored leather seats offer a comfortable place to rest. Take a virtual tour of the plane and study design lines and colors, then imagine how the RGB lighting effects create different moods. Have you seen better interior aircraft design?
