Economy / Premium Economy
Having supplied Qantas for over 35 years, in 2016 John Horsfall developed textiles in collaboration with David Caon for the new Qantas 787 Dreamliner interior.
A progression of the aesthetic established by Qantas creative director Marc Newson, the assignment included redesigning the existing economy blanket, which we’d supplied for a number of years, and also developing a new blanket specifically for Premium Economy, an area of the airline business that is growing rapidly.
The goal of the redesign was to achieve the following:
- Improve passenger comfort
- Add interest with subtle texture and colour
The John Horsfall design team worked closely with David and the Caon studio to translate his vision into textured woven blankets with subtle colour changes and weave effects.
Textured woven yarn dyed blanket with whipped stitch edge finish.
