FITT / Accessible toilet

FITT
FITT

FITT is a wheelchair accessible toilet for single aisle commercial aircraft. This project was motivated by the challenge of providing accessibility in such a small space, as well as by the urgency of improving the experience of disabled passengers. FITT’s expandable cabin allows increasing the toilet’s functional area in a discreet way. Extra space is guaranteed by a layout that explores the interior’s diagonals and by main components with angled surfaces. Every detail, from the shape of the handlebars to the position of the lights, aims to enable passengers with reduced mobility to live a full and positive flight experience.
