Sabre, our economy class seat, in a dedicated article.
We are really excited to announce the launch of our Sabre seat designed by Factory Design. Stylish, luxurious and comfortable it’s everything you don'expect from an economy class airline seat. The partial fixed back shell means that your personal space isn’t affected by the decisions of the passenger in front, and likewise there is no guilt or bruised knees attached to your decision to enjoy the (larger than normal) recline and take a nap yourself. The knee clearance of the seatback is outstanding in the upright position and due to its hybrid fixed back recline and being carefully engineered so that shin clearance is optimised throughout recline, the Sabre doesn’t suffer from issues which have plagued other fully fixed back seats in the past. The materials have also been chosen very carefully, the Sabre is dripping with finishes, detailing and materials you would more commonly associate with a luxury car or yacht – Carbon fibre, billet machined alloys and finishing options like Poltrona Frau leather upholstery you might otherwise only come across in your Ferrari. You travel faster in this seat though…
Sabre is a stylish high-tech economy class seat with a semi-fixed back shell. It combines the best of a traditional reclining system with the space advantage of a partial fixed back-shell creating a novel seat. The advanced technical platform combined with the ultra-modern design allows the passenger to enjoy a constant personal space throughout the flight, regardless of the reclining position of the passenger in front.
According to some extracts from the article, “the seat design allows the passenger to enjoy a constant personal space throughout the flight, regardless of the reclining position of the passenger in front”. …And so on: “the new seat removes the claustrophobic effect of previous generations of fixed-back seats”.
A very big thanks to Factory Design for its great cooperation in the designing process of the seat and thanks to Design Week for the article.
