Aircraft Interiors: The Potential of Monuments
By José Luis Martín-Oar, Business Strategist Lead
Aircraft interiors are usually thought of as highly optimized spaces. Monuments in particular are rarely seen as an area for innovation. These elements are mostly used as simple dividers and branding surfaces, and innovation is often limited to finding the lightest and most resistant materials.
At Mormedi we believe that with the development of LED lighting and large modular LED displays, these highly visual elements could be integrated into monuments. Together they could be used more efficiently and help airlines to differentiate themselves from competitors, drive sales and enhance passenger experience.
For airlines that offer an all inclusive full range of services, we see opportunities for brand building by using the displays to create emotional and cultural links to the brand. For low cost airlines and the unbundling of services, we see a clear opportunity for dynamic advertisement and the personalization of services offered by passenger segmentation.
Finally, for passengers, we see the displays as a tool to create different moods by integrating them further with lighting, using them as a communication tool to show dynamic information like flight data and multi-language assistance, and as an interactive entertainment platform for the front row seats.
Mormedi, the design and innovation consultancy, together with the other members of the Future Cabin for the Asian Market (FUCAM) consortium, today revealed new concepts designed to revolutionise the flying experience for passengers from China, Japan, and Southeast Asia from 2025 onwards.
Mormedi attended IFA 2018 in Berlin. Here are the top technology and design trends that will be hitting the consumer market in the next 12 months in domestic appliances, smart homes, TV/audio/photo, PCs, smartphones, and gadgets.
When it comes to the future of retail stores, there are two clear trends: the catastrophists who say that physical stores are dead, and the revisionists who say that physical retail is here to stay. Indeed, physical retail will not only survive, but thrive, if used to enhance a customers’ coherent omnichannel experience of a brand.
