Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 3 February 2011

Stefan Lindfors has been chosen to update the design elements of Finnair flights. Lindfors, one of the best known Finnish modern designers, has won many awards around the world for his work.

Design is an important element of Finnair's heritage, which has been apparent throughout the company's history. Timeless design is represented, for example, by the Ultima Thule Arctic glass series, designed for Finnair by Tapio Wirkkala in 1969, which was introduced for the first time on Finnair's New York route. Now Finnair's customer promise is "designed for you", which extends to all of the company's activities.

For Finnair, design does not only mean tableware, uniforms and aircraft interiors. Finnair's design extends, for example, from route network planning and service all the way to the frequent-flyer programme. With good design, we can create a practical and functional but, at the same time, memorable and surprising travel experience, said Vice President Jarkko Konttinen, who is responsible for the Finnair brand and marketing communications.

Stefan Lindfors, said, The most significant insights of my career have occurred on aircraft, so I am delighted to get the opportunity to influence flight design. Cooperation with Finnair is an honour for me, because the company is a pioneer in the use of Finnish design.

Lindfors' eventful career has stretched over 25 years already, during which he has been involved in creating around 200 projects in the fields of interior architecture, design, sculpture and film directing. His work has been recognised by, among others, the Vin Tanner Trailblazer Award, Good Design, the Tokyo Design Award and the London Kerrang! Best Music Video Award.
