In Brief

Morph uses fabric and foam to create a customizable seat that could improve economy travel.

If there is one issue with economy class that stands out above all the rest, it’s the distinct lack of space for nearly every part of your body. To try and encourage ideas that could change that, British design firm Seymourpowell has created a seating concept called Morph. It allows the size of individual seats to be altered, meaning each passenger can have a seat designed just for them.

Rather than a trio of individual seats, each is made of several pieces of fabric and foam, Morph is better described as a bench. A single piece of fabric is stretched across to form the seats, and another forms the back of the chair. The individual seats are designated using armrests and dividers to clamp the fabric in place.
