AIM Altitude provides a sneak peek of its 2017 AIX showcase
For this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, AIM Altitude’s exhibit will provide a metaphor for what the company does best: taking complex design visions from concept through to certified reality, while maintaining the design integrity and brand identity.
The stand design will be structured around a development project, within which two areas will be created. One will provide a concept door 2 entrance, and the other, a practical product: one being a creative element, the other, an offerable product; both illustrating AIM Altitude’s design, engineering and manufacturing techniques and capabilities.
Ross Burns, Group Lead Industrial Designer at AIM Altitude’s Cabin Interiors division, said: “The Virtual Experience Studio will be a creative area where customers and visitors can customise an aircraft scene to their own taste. This ‘white space’ virtual-reality model uses state-of-the-art VR technology, to bring alive the interior space. Visitors to the stand will experience physical feed back blended with digital customisation of an array of units. Trim and finish, as well as ‘feature’ possibilities, will be enabled for visitors to see in real time how different products could look within the cabin architecture.”
The physical product being displayed is an exciting proposition too, with numerous new features, some of which AIM Altitude describes as revolutionary. These developments to the product have, Ross Burns explains, come about from customer interaction, where AIM Altitude has designed and engineered features to meet specific customer demands. The exact details, however, will remain under wraps until the Show itself.
