Transport seat

Design: Isao Hosoe

Production: Lazzerini C.M.L., Italy, 1981


This new seat for mass transport vehicles solves one of the most fundamental aspects of traveling comfort; the desire to stretch out into an almost supine position.

This is accomplished with the inclination of the backrest and simultaneously by the extension of its upper section and the lowering of its front section. This guarantees both a steadier support for the head and excellent blood circulation in the lower part of the body, which are necessary for a comfortable ride.

The seat is made of semi-soft self-skinning polyurethane foam with metallic inserts in light alloy. The cushions are made of polyurethane foam covered with pre-formed cloth. The tilting movement of the tray table is independent of the inclination of the backrest.
