Our philosophy

Designing and manufacturing seats for today’s discerning airline passengers is an exercise in balancing cabin economics and passenger experience.

Each Acro design is rooted in our philosophy that comfort is not found in the seat itself, but rather in the space between the seats. We use Extraspatial Design to maximise the ‘micro spaces’ that are often overlooked in traditional aircraft seating. By looking at the ‘space within the space’ we unlock the hidden dimensions in seats, in ways that create extraordinary and unexpected differences to passenger experience.
