Etihad Airways

The objective of Etihad Airways was to create an Arabic-patterned, projected, moving light display at the door through which all main deck passengers board. The ceiling extends between two highly sculptured and concealed galleys, and was required to give a unique experience of light, coolness, and the elimination of claustrophobia, upon entry. The execution by AIM Altitude involved the design and testing of a huge LED light array, a unique translucent diffuser and a novel way of creating the light lens pattern from AIM Altitude fibre-reinforced composite materials. In flight, the ceiling delineates the social and refreshment service area.
