The new EVA Air business class seats get a refreshing make-over and upgrade from BMW's design team

The line between business class and first class in airline cabins is becoming increasingly blurred. This could not be more evident in EVA Air's newly redesigned Royal Laurel Class (business class) cabin seats, to be showcased in its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the Taipei-Hong Kong route. The Taiwanese airline has enlisted California-based Designworks, part of the BMW Group, to create tailor-made cabin seats in a bespoke cabin environment.EVA Air business classStepping away from conventional aircraft interiors, the design team has taken a more mature approach, using a muted, warm-colour palette that is heavily influenced by architecture and furniture design, EVA Air's new muted-tone business class seats can be reclined and extended to a flat bed complemented by wool carpets, brown-leather accents, rich custom grey textiles and mood lighting.

If features such as adjustable privacy panels and generous built-in storage cabinets, or 18-inch HD touchscreen monitors, noise-cancelling headphones and extra-large fold-out tables were not enough to impress, the new 59cm-wide flat-bed seats that extend to 193cm are sure to please.

"Our goal was to take a proven seat platform and make it unique to EVA," says Designworks' LA studio design director Johannes Lampela. "From privacy, service, interaction, stowage and amenities, we explored the holistic passenger experience."
