SPIRIANT’s Premium Étagère wins iF Design Award
Neu-Isenburg, Germany, March 13, 2017 – SPIRIANT, the LSG Group’s inflight equipment solutions subsidiary, has won an iF Design award for their new Étagère premium dining ware concept. The fine bone china set is unique in its marriage of versatility and aesthetics, focusing on giving premium-class passengers a truly exclusive moment onboard.
The concept creates a holistic meal experience where visual appeal and functional requirements are perfectly combined, living up to SPIRIANT’s brand claim, “Where inspiration meets performance.” Fine bone china is thinner and more transparent than common porcelain, making it both elegant and perfectly lightweight for air travel. Its modular and sleek design, consisting of a serving plate, a smaller plate and bowl, means it can be arranged in several constellations and stacked, making it both versatile and interactive. It can also be used in a lounge or at the onboard bar.
The awards ceremony took place on March 9 at the BMW World exhibition center in Munich. Daniel Knies, Director Design & Product at SPRIANT, and Eva Hotz, Product Manager for Premium Experience SPIRIANT, proudly attended to accept the award. Since its creation in 1953, the iF Design Awards represents the largest design competition in the world, bestowing a seal of excellence and testimony of quality on the products it recognizes.
“We’re elated that the Étagère concept is receiving the recognition that we’ve always felt it deserved,” said Daniel Knies. “The work that we put into the design process was meticulous, in-depth and always with the premium passenger experience at the forefront of our minds.”
