Back on Aircraft Interior Expo 2018

iD-product participated last week at the Aircraft Interior Expo in Hamburg. This reference show in the industry brings together all the players in the aircraft cabin interior each year. From seat manufacturers to entertainment equipment manufacturers to subassembly suppliers such as iD-product, this is an essential meeting place to exchange and meet new partners. We exhibited for the occasion on the Pavilion of Business France by sharing the booth with one of our partners, METAL-CHROME. I will come back in another article about the project that binds us to them.

For our first participation, we wanted to come and demonstrate our credibility by presenting different innovative prototypes alongside our past achievements.

ECLIPSE, the star of our booth


ECLIPSE is a VIP table project, the red thread of several years of research and development. This dining table with innovative kinematic for the sector is mainly oriented VIP cabins but could be implemented in different forms. We decided to present this innovation in a leather seat similar to the one that will soon welcome it on a plane.

The ECLIPSE dining table offers to its passenger an increased ergonomics and many features that allow him to enjoy his flight.

One of the new features is the presence of a magnetic foot glass that keeps the glass on the table despite the vibrations and turbulence of the aircraft. I invite you to visit the page dedicated to ECLIPSE to discover its kinematics (it’s here).

The cup holder for thin wall

This concept of ultra-compact storage cup holder is mainly dedicated to the zones constrained in thickness but wishing to offer a wide support for a glass or a bottle. The opening is triggered by a light pressure on the set and unfolds in a coordinated way to create a volume in three dimensions. Ergonomics and perceived quality have been optimized. Of course, the “fantasy” color  was chosen to identify the different movements but this product can be integrated into any environment.

Exciting meetings

I would end this article by thanking all the visitors who took turns at our booth during these 3 days of show. The widespread interest in the skills and activities of iD-product reinforces our strategy and objectives.

See you next year
