Design Concept

Located at Toronto Pearson International Airport, the design concept of Air France/KLM Lounge was to blend flowing forms evocative of flight and air currents within a space enveloped in warm wood and metallic finishes reminiscent of vintage airplanes. Entitled Vuelo, Spanish for “flight”, Vuelo was designed to evoke flight through wing-like arms, sleek aerodynamic forms reminiscent airline lounge chairs and metallic fabric upholstery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Design Solution

The Vuelo, seen throughout the space in various versions as both a side chair, lounge and wingback chair, evokes flight with its subtle winged arms. The lounge and wing-back lounge chairs (ideal for sleeping) sit facing the expansive windows where one can lean back and view actual take-offs and landings.
