JPA Design collaborated with Optimares to refine its unique Quadra kinematic seat, which does not impact personal space when the passenger in front reclines their seat. The new iteration offers a significantly better customer experience through improved comfort and maximised living space.
The unique backrest design combines the structure, recline mechanism and the visually appealing passenger facing surface into a single, elegant component. This allowed customer storage options to be increased by adding a front mounted amenity pocket to keep essential items such as personal devices close at hand.
Despite the sophisticated recline mechanism used to improve customer legroom, the new seat’s weight, a crucial factor for airline operations, has been reduced through the use of lightweight carbon fibre composites.
The new Quadra seat offers customers efficiency, comfort and convenience to redefine long-haul economy travel.
