Two Ingenio Aerospace offerings have garnered Red Dot Awards for product design – the Cabin Tablet Arm and Table Tablet Holder. The awards are chosen by a jury of international experts. Other winners for 2021 include Apple, Bose, Google, LG, Sony and Dassault (for the Falcon 6X).
The Cabin Tablet Arm for business aircraft is made of aerospace-grade aluminium and is designed to be both robust and lightweight. It offers space for a large variety of tablets of different sizes and also includes a charging function. The articulated arm can be adjusted and enables the user to work ergonomically.
The Red Dot jury stated: “The Cabin Tablet Arm impresses with its filigree and well-thought-out design, which harmonises with any aircraft interior and offers a high utility value.”
The Table Tablet Holder was designed specifically for Embraer’s Phenom 300 business jet. The smartphone and tablet holder allows passengers to transform their seat into an entertainment or work area. It is made of machined aluminium and attaches to retractable tables without damaging the surface. The holder can accommodate tablets and smartphones of any size, as they are simply inserted into the recess. It is stowed away with a protective cover in the sideledge compartments.
The Red Dot jury stated: “The tablet holder’s construction is amazingly simple, and its minimalist design approach fits perfectly into Phenom 300 interiors.”
“We are proud to have been recognised by Red Dot, one of the world’s most prestigious design awards,” said James Bell, president and CEO of Ingenio Aerospace. “By celebrating innovation, integrity and aesthetics, Red Dot highlights the best designs across a multitude of disciplines. Always attentive to our clients’ needs and preferences – from aircraft manufacturers to individual passengers – we enrich the inflight experience by delivering products that facilitate access to electronic devices. Earning Red Dot Design Awards is a much-appreciated recognition of our team’s vision and hard work.”
