Turn Your Space into a Destination

By Matt Osborne – Managing Director, OMK

Good design makes a difference. OMK believes that everybody benefits from good design and promotes this to its customers – leading airport operators, architects and aviation consultants. Many public spaces are being reimagined as the world adjusts to Covid-19, OMK explains why considered furniture selection needs to be at top of the agenda.

With over 55 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and supply of terminal seating, London based design studio OMK understands the impact furniture has on public spaces. It is the main touch point and turns a space into a destination, positively impacting passengers, operators and the environment.

People are now looking for experiences that promote wellbeing and healthy habits. So, it comes as no surprise that wellness is something travellers seek and need at airports. The key to creating a more welcoming space is to focus on passenger flow, reducing congestion and in turn creating more useable spaces. OMK has been promoting the use of dynamic seating layouts for many years, encouraging its customers to reconsider linear seating in favour of articulated runs that match the built environment. This type of layout when combined with a range of products can create islands centred around specific zones for passengers looking to relax, work or for a family friendly space. Integrated technology can provide easy access to touchpoints such as intelligent charging points and information display screens which in turn decreases stress levels as passengers can relax whilst using the space for longer. To reduce movement in the centre of each zone, short-sit seating is placed on the perimeter of each island where the passenger flow is more active, reducing hot spots around long- sit areas. The positive benefits are not just limited to passengers. Dynamic layouts are proven to increase dwell time in gate areas facilitating timely boarding. In retail areas they give a 360 degree view of the built environment which encourages retail footfall and boosts non-aviation revenue.
