Custom made carpet designed by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius
In close cooperation with leading Dutch design artist Hella Jongerius from Jongeriuslab Desso created a revolutionary new KLM carpet design for KLM’s flagship “World Business Class” cabin. Maintaining the traditional KLM blue, bringing the outside inside the cabin, creating a warm and luxurious feeling for the passengers in the premium cabin and underlining the sustainability requirements. As base colour a warm brown has been chosen which has been enriched with deep grey dots in an all over pattern to create a warm and spacious cabin. The yarn for the twinkling “KLM blue” stars in the carpet has been created by recycling the suits from KLM’s flight attendants into yarn. At the end of its life as flooring covering all the old carpets are collected by Desso to give it a meaningful second life. A clear example of Supreme Dutch Design and Sustainability.
