Unum unveils Unum One Business Class seat
Unum Aircraft Seating has revealed its first Business Class seat — Unum One. The seat has been in development for more than two years.
“The remarkable thing about this seat is how it has surprised me. Early on in the development process it looked great on paper, then the first cardboard space models were exciting, but now the real thing has blown me away. I’m really proud of the team and the seat they’ve created from the Zero Gravity position to the space, the table and the privacy door, it all just works,” said Executive Chairman and CEO of Unum Chris Brady in a March 23 press release.
Unum One offers an infinitely adjustable range of seat positions, including the heightened comfort of a well-supported Zero Gravity position. According to Unum, every inch of available space has been utilized in particular the footwell area.
The seat features a 21-inch seat width and for single aisles an 80-inch bed length. Unum is working with industrial designers Acumen.
“We set out to be reliably comfortable and sustainably made, which has driven the design of our entire business. For example, we see designing in maintainability as part of this promise, the seat needs to work like new every day, so we’ve made the replacement of all the moving parts and the high wear areas straightforward and quick for on-wing replacement,” added Brady.
