Aeroplane cabin seats typically cause fatigue and discomfort during the flight. Using a knitted pattern, Parabolico distributes the passenger’s weight evenly on the seat, meaning that each seat contours itself to its passenger’s posture and measurements. Thanks to the string distribution along the main frame, the knit provides support in the most critical areas like the lower back and sitting bones, leaving areas like the shoulders and upper back with less tension.   In terms of form and production, the knit is first mounted onto a seat-shaped frame. This frame has a profile that allows the seat to be further mounted with a protective cushion. The main frame then allows for the installation of complementary accessories such as service trays and armrests.
