Industrial design studio Priestmangoode drew inspiration from domestic interiors to design a first-class cabin with sofas and wardrobes for Brazilian airline TAM.

The TAM First Class Cabin is based around the theme "home away from home," and Priestmangoode's designers describe how they wanted to bring "the comfort of home" onto an aircraft.

Sofas take the places of footstools, so that families and small groups can choose to sit facing one another, like they would in their own homes.

Seating is upholstered with soft fabrics for extra comfort and each passenger has access to an adjustable reading lamp, a wooden table, a touchscreen control panel, a television screen and a selection of magazines and city guides.

Wardrobes are provided for each passenger to store their luggage and these are lined with leather and suede.

The designs are being rolled out across TAM's entire fleet of Boeing 777 aircraft carriers, plus Priestmangoode has also developed new interiors for the economy and new Space Plus cabins.

"The designs present TAM as an important international player and give them the tools they need to compete with the world’s other major international carriers," said Priestmangoode director Luke Hawes.

Priestmangoode have worked on a number of projects for airlines, including the first-class cabins of Lufthansa's A380 planes and a conceptual airline seat with a detachable wheelchair.

    So nice to see design that doesn’t look like a bad science fiction 70′s movie. Well done.
