train seat concept

Product designers SeymourPowell have designed a new seating system for trains, allowing you to create whatever configuration of chairs that you wish. With this design, chairs don’t have to be locked to the standard group of two or four seats, rather they can be rotated and moved, even arranged as large groups for meetings. Another possible use of this kind of flexible seating would be for night trains where seats can be removed to make space for beds at night, while the extra seats could be utilized during the day when more people commute. The designer hopes that business and premium class trains will adopt the new seating design, and if the cost isn’t too high, perhaps train operators might just do so.
