Eurostar unveiled its latest train interiors, designed by Philippe Starck, in Paris last week. The revamped interiors will be phased in to trains from early next year, with the refurbishment programme expected to be complete by 2005. Premium First interiors will feature egg-shaped, swivelling leather armchairs (pictured centre), able to be configured singly or in groups of four to six. First class seats have been upgraded to encompass a ‘wrap-around’ headrest, the bar area has been refreshed (right), and the standard class colour palette has also been refined (left). The interiors redesign is the latest stage of a £35m investment programme, which has seen the cross-Channel train operator introduce Starck-designed lounges, literature and signage.
