Circular Carrier Seat


In celebration of the 100 year anniversary of Schiphol airport, Vanderlande presented the board of directors of Schiphol the ‘Circular Carrier Seat.’ This takes place at the Airports Going Green conference October 31 – November 2 in Amsterdam.

WeBeatTheMountain and FLEX developed the seats based on the carriers that are used for the baggage handling at the Amsterdam airport. Each carrier is re-shaped to give it the functionality of a comfortable seat.

We combined it with a wooden frame to make it a beautiful and extremely durable object for public spaces. On average each carrier has connected 30.000 passengers with their baggage throughout its life cycle. As of today, the carriers can be enjoyed again for many years to come by thousands of passengers to sit down for a little rest.
