Bernù

Daniel Bernoulli is responsible for finding the theorem that eventually led to flight. Bernù would have been the Swiss scientist’s nickname had he been on the design team for this project. But this collection of airport and public seating does more than just take the name of the person who inspired aviation. Many of the design features and visual elements are from the aircraft industry. Components have an aerodynamic form and are tapered for weight saving. The furniture is built in a modular fashion to enable the quick refitting of parts. It also features a patented method of attaching the components to the central beam. Lastly, it is the only beam seating that can be specified in curves allowing space planners greater design freedom. Bernù can be found in airports and public spaces all over the world including: Hong Kong International Airport, LAX, Dallas, Sao Paolo International Airport and the new Kai Tak Cruise Ship Terminal in Hong Kong, designed by Sir Norman Foster.   Manufacturer: Arconas, Canada
