Ingenious Design

RECARO’s successful combination of ergonomics, functionality and aesthetics

For RECARO, Ingenious Design encompasses the combination of ergonomics, functionality and aesthetics with the aim of offering our customers the best possible seat.

Thanks to the use of high-tech materials and ingenious new construction solutions, the lightest RECARO economy class aircraft seat only weighs around 9 kilograms. The inside of the seat holds the secret. Instead of standard foam, an innovative netting material forms the core of the backrest, which allows the foam to be much thinner for a leaner and lighter backrest.

We call these trailblazing solutions Ingenious Design – and it is found in every RECARO seat.

However, Ingenious Design goes even further. A RECARO aircraft passenger seat is not just very light and durable, it also offers added comfort. In many models, for example, we have moved the literature pocket above the tray table so that passengers can enjoy even more legroom as well as easier access to their magazines.

This is just one of many reasons that make sitting in a RECARO aircraft seat so comfortable. Others include, for example, the ergonomically optimized angle between the seat cushion and the backrest as well as the anatomically shaped contour of the backrest.

Ingenious Design is an indispensable component of our brand’s DNA. The design process takes place in every single business area and is supported by RECARO Holding’s very own Design Center. Innovative concepts, materials and designs ensure that your RECARO experience is always very special.
