Soft, wool-blend aircraft seat concept

modulo2The Caon Design Office in Australia has collaborated with the Woolmark Company to develop Modulo, an aircraft seat concept based on a three-dimensional knitted wool-blend membrane designed to solve issues including weight reduction, sustainability and the need for frequent cabin refreshes, while delivering well­-being, hygiene and privacy for the passenger.

In partnering with Woolmark, Caon identified Australian merino wool as the perfect material for this project owing to its softness, strength, innate versatility and technical benefits. Merino wool is also a 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre.
