Brandimage has designed the new architectural concept for SkyTeam lounges, the airline alliance. The lounge which has just opened at Hong Kong airport is the first to unveil this new concept; others will follow in Dubai and Beijing in the coming months.
This new concept designed by Brandimage responds to SkyTeam's desire to create a haven of peace for its travelers. The oak wood elements, beige leather hues and elegant gray fabrics combined with the modernity of white and touches of fresh green give the salon its soothing atmosphere where travelers will enjoy recharging their batteries and relaxing before setting off. board their next flight.
This new concept is an evolution of the first SkyTeam lounges in London Heathrow, Istanbul and Sydney. We have kept the iconic taut curved lines and regulars will recognize the iconic green wall as well as the famous wine bar redeployed here in a whole new atmosphere.
Elegance, privacy and individual comfort
Custom-made elements as well as high-end furniture give the living room its special personality by offering a soothing, welcoming and refined environment. The wooden ribbons delimit the spaces without ever dividing them, thus creating a feeling of protection and intimacy. Several types of seats allow travelers to settle comfortably in the space of their choice.
Great attention to well-being and exclusive services
A dedicated yoga studio allows everyone to relax by following yoga programs created exclusively for SkyTeam before boarding the next flight. This ideal solution for staying fit while traveling is exclusive to SkyTeam and illustrates the alliance's commitment to putting into practice its motto “Caring more about you”.
For customers who wish to work, computers are available at the laptop bar. Brandimage has also designed custom coffee tables with USB ports and integrated power outlets allowing travelers to charge their electronic devices while enjoying the comfortable lounge chairs.
A spectacular buffet and the first Noodle bar
The dining area is organized around a spectacular buffet with an exclusive design which throughout the day offers dishes chosen to meet the tastes of the international clientele of the alliance. The crockery and accessories are arranged in a dedicated cabinet designed in harmony with the wooden partitions.
In addition, the Hong Kong lounge is the first to offer a Noodle bar where a chef prepares personalized hot meals on demand.
The iconic SkyTeam plant ribbon
This ribbon-shaped green wall is made up of a variety of plant species selected for their ability to adapt to the climatic conditions of the living room. This vegetal ribbon breathes a breath of fresh air, a world apart in the partitioned and artificial environment of the airport.
