Project Details

SAS First Class Lounge

Orbit was appointed to oversee the interpretation and implementation of the first SAS 1st Class Lounge outside Scandinavia.The overall concept was about making SAS passengers feel like they were in a Swedish home so the project incorporates a living area, kitchen and dining area and internet space and materials such as leather, oak, limestone floors and fabric blinds were used to great effect. An artist was commissioned to produce images for all lounges globally to achieve a consistent visual in all the airline’s spaces.

This was a great test of Orbit’s ability to control quality to the highest standards as SAS was a little concerned about the application of the rigorous standards they wanted to maintain in a foreign environment. As an example, the custom-made horsehair upholstered chairs that were produced locally in Bangkok were rejected six times before they passed our strict quality control standards.
