Marc Newson, the Australian ‘superstar’ designer now based in Paris, has created an interiors concept for Australian airline Qantas, which includes a state-of-the-art sleeper seat called Skybed. A cocoon-like design, almost 2m long and 60cm wide when fully reclined to eight degrees, the seat combines high-tech features such as in-flight text messaging and a 26cm multi-channel screen with touch-of-a-button comfort controls. Curtains, carpets, pillows and blankets are embraced by Newson’s overall cabin design. The work will be applied to the international business class sections of Qantas’ fleet of 747-400s between now and the end of 2004.
