obsideon / Personal waiting area


Obsideon is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of airports. Offered as an additional service of the airline, this kind of furniture, located in the terminal, is a personal waiting area, containing a locker for the hand luggage and conveys the latest personal flight information to the stressed economic class traveler.
The user decides the level of his isolation to other travelers by dimming or closing the object. An OLED display operates as light source and information display. When falling asleep the voyager will reminded if it’s time for boarding.
Waiting for the connection flight or remaining a delayed flight is now a relaxed situation.
