Formation Design Group has developed a new lie-flat seating concept that represents the next major evolution in premium seating. The configuration features lie-flat beds arranged to allow seat counts comparable to traditional angled flat seats while providing larger beds compared to staggered arrangements. In addition, the concept allows for direct aisle access for all seats. This highly efficient arrangement is made possible by the use of vertical cabin space through a small elevation change incorporated into every third seat.
Formation is seeking airlines or seat manufacturers to license and codevelop this patent-pending concept.
