The color palette was inspired by the Geven was modeled after the Italian coastline at sunset with light grey seats, deep blue headrests and seat frames with red accents.

"This combination gives a fresh and clean visual chromatic experience with bursts of warmth. Bright whites have been used to highlight key features of the seats," said release from Geven.

Also part of the Elemento design are technical materials, like mesh to keep the interiors contemporary and nod to Italy’s heritage of designing high performance vehicles. The natural metal finishes were chosen to offer a more environmentally conscious approach, as well as reflect Geven’s mission to deliver honest, hardworking, exquisitely crafted products.

“We started this project with the aim to create the next generation passenger experience,” said Pasquale Rapullini, Research and Development Manager at Geven, in today’s announcement.

Daniel MacInnes, Design Director at PriestmanGoode added: “Geven’s knowledge and passion for pushing the development of the seat allowed us to integrate higher levels of quality and finishes and will enable them to become the new class leaders with this family of next-gen seats. We developed bespoke materials and finishes, and a new style direction, based on clean integrated lines.”

The Geven Premium, Premium + and Business Class seats will be unveiled later this year.
