Avro is an endlessly flexible seating system for all types of travelers. With its combination of elegant design, vivid colors, visionary engineering and integrated power, Avro elevates any interior space and brings the VIP lounge experience to any waiting area with one single, easy-to-install system. A universal beam structure enables all seat types to be easily and intuitively installed, removed or replaced – making Avro simple to maintain, clean and reconfigure as needs change.
Lynn Gordon, vice president of business development at Arconas, said, “Avro is the most versatile airport furniture ecosystem on the market today. Our patented universal connector is engineered to accommodate Avro’s entire extended family of seating, including tandem, hospitality lounge and upholstered recliners, as well as benches, tables and accessories.”
Avro incorporates low-voltage USB-A and USB-C outlets in the armrests so passengers can safely and conveniently charge their devices or catch up on work as they move through the airport. The patented, retrofittable outlets ensure ease of maintenance while futureproofing the power supply as technology evolves.
Avro fuses decades of Arconas’s expertise in sector-leading terminal furniture with the ergonomic knowledge and user-focused product experience of design agency Pearson Lloyd. Tom Lloyd, co-founder and director at Pearson Lloyd, said, “Avro’s elegant aesthetic elevates airport design and enriches the passenger experience. Circular design is an essential part of Avro. We wanted to address the three users in the room – the operator, the user and the planet.”
Avro’s structural components are crafted from recyclable aluminum, and all components are designed to be easily replaceable to minimize waste and maximize Avro’s lifespan. Seating shells are stackable for efficient and economical shipping, and the fully demountable system is engineered for easy on-site assembly, ensuring Avro carbon emissions are the lowest they can be. At the end of Avro’s useful life, post-consumer polypropylene shells can be repurposed to create clothing and industrial fibers, containers, storage racks and many other items.
