priestmangoode re-designed both domestic and international aircraft interiors, through lounges with bespoke seating and finishes, to airport interiors, digital media, in-flight meal service items, menus and a plethora of other details.

united ‘polaris’ includes new airplane seats based on an original, patented seat concept and layout invented by acumen. priestmangoode then led the development of the seat into a unique product among other key amenities.

‘at priestmangoode we design products and environments that elevate brands and shape outstanding passenger experiences,’ explains director nigel goode. ‘we have been working in close partnership with united airlines to create a holistic, refined, human-focused journey. the new cabin and brand identity are the physical embodiment of united airlines’ new philosophy, which keeps the passenger at its heart, and rather than merely move passengers around the world, aspires to move the world forward.’

the airplane cabins include an integrated personal storage with latching doors, headphone hook and mirror, a ‘do not disturb’ feature, large solid surface cocktail table and unique trim and finish as well as the latest innovations in aviation materials. the intuitive lighting and seat controls can be operated from any position and give passengers greater control of their environment. united ‘polaris’ by priestmangoode will be available on selected international flights from december 2016.
