(mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Industrial Design Programme Master of Science Design for Interaction Date 2013-08-30 Abstract As the role of cross-continental air travel becomes increasingly crucial and common, the importance of in-flight comfort and experience also enhances. However, the current aircraft interior is commonly considered as providing an unpleasant and dreadful experience, especially in a long distance flight. Since the travel pattern and perceptions in travel will be altering considerably with regard to the rapid pace of developments in all fields, the interior design needs a fresh plan for the future. An aircraft interior design is proposed for the Blended Wing Body for year 2050 with the focus on enhancing crowd wellbeing. Research covering interaction in the field of sociological psychology in current context in combination with designing the future context in 2050 lead to a final design proposal. The final design features use of the Blended Wing Body as the platform, the wearable technology as the tool, the social interaction as the mean and the crowd well-being as the goal. This design project aims at delivering an inspirational design concept, which provides different possibility in arrangements of aircraft interior. The implementation of the Blended Wing Body is also a significant trial in showing the new concept in function and meaning of air travel.
