the ‘b-tourist’ designed by graduates of the bezalel academy of art and design in israel, idan noyberg and gal bulka is made of an elastic fabric that fits many seats sizes. after assembling the piece, it offers one their own private space to quietly eat, read a book, watch a movie and to sleep without being disturbed. the side of the material has a pocket inserted into it where one can place small items they may wish to keep close by during the flight. plastic rings are also applied along the edge, which enable the width to be easily adjusted.
