Unum Aircraft Seating’s Door 2.0 – The Zen Door won the Cabin Service Concept category at the RedCabin Trinity Awards, which took place during the Aircraft Cabin Innovation Summit at Fort Worth, Dallas, on 13 June.

Created alongside MGR Foamtex, Door 2.0 is much lighter than most suite doors and features folds that were apparently inspired by the ancient Japanese art of origami.

At the awards ceremony, Door 2.0 was praised for its ability to deliver privacy to business class passengers, at a significantly lighter weight than current solutions.

Alan McInnes, VP Business Development at Unum accepts award
Alan McInnes, VP Business Development at Unum, who accepted the accolade on the night says: “This is Unum’s second award in as many weeks – an achievement we are immensely proud of. Door 2.0 represents our commitment to innovative design that prioritises passenger comfort and experience, and underscores the dedication of our team and our partners at MGR Foamtex.”
This award comes hot off the heels of Unum’s Cabin Design Concept win at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards for its Unum One seat, which took place on 31 May in Cannes.
