Could This ‘Twister’ Flying Market Is Finally Made By Seat?

At least one design company is working in the opposite direction, while the airlines themselves seem to be constantly designing ways to make economy class passengers unhappy. A design consultancy, Factorydesign, has suggested a plane seat that’s based on the spine, which would let it move and twist to accommodate the passenger who is seatbelted to it.

Adam White, Factorydesign’s manager, started considering how to improve airplane seat design after surviving his own economy class flight. He realized that some of the restrictions that the airplane seat that was normal puts on the body could be eliminated if the seat has been more like the human body. White informed Skift:

“The real breakthrough of the idea was that each of prior chairs were based on, basically, a collection of hinges […] But my observation was that I have a spine, which means that I twist and twist 1 way and another. By placing a backbone into the chair, it allows the freedom of motion, twists and turns, without creating stress points. If you cross your legs, you get pressure point that is powerful under your thigh at the edge of the chair. At a Twister seat, the chair spins down at that point, and alleviates pressure.”

The seat which White designed — and it is called the Twister — includes its spine with flexible “ribs” attached to it. So does the seatback, letting him be encouraged in a way that’s practical and more comfortable as the passenger shifts his weight moves in 1 direction. And not only would the Twister chair make for a more pleasant trip for passengers, unlike some seating concepts, it would not require any real reconfiguration from the airline cabin, as — as Aircraft Interiors International reports — the Twister is exactly the exact same size as a standard economy chair.

However the delight of seeing feel like a game of individual Jenga is tempered by the understanding that these thoughts are still ideas. White told Skift the Factorydesign has four functioning prototypes of the Twister seat, but it hasn’t yet been fabricated or entirely engineered. But it’s nice to know the Twister is on the market, even if it will not be in the cabin for our excursion.
