Blink designed by Richard Hutten, Lounge seat render
Richard Hutten

Created by Richard Hutten, Blink is a plastic-free and locally-produced seating system designed for airports.

Blink is designed by Richard Hutten and produced by Lensvelt contract furniture for Schiphol airport.

To produce Blink, the old seats at Schiphol were recycled; the old seats became the new seats.

The carbon footprint of Blink is 95 percent less compared with similar products. The main focus in the design was to create an as long lasting product, but should its lifecycle come to an end, it can be recycled easily again.

This project has been longlisted in the seating design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
