China’s new Zhuhai Airport is spending Ãº2m on seating designed by OMK Design.
The airport, in Guangdong Province, will open on 1 May. The architect is Jia-Qiang Wang.
OMK director Rodney Kinsman – who designed the two seats being used – approached the client last year. `I suggested the Seville seat, which was used in the 1992 Seville Expo, and the Trax seat,’ he says.
`The airport wanted to establish a new international standard, to look like a progressive western airport,’ adds Kinsman.
