Istanbul Airport, operated by IGA, is planning to increase passenger capacity to 200 million passengers annually and hosting flights to more than 350 destinations once fully complete in 2025. This means that functional and comfortable areas are required in order to provide the best experience for passengers in a place with intense passenger traffic. At this point, Nurus with over 90 years’ experience in furniture solutions has provided not only terminal seats for Istanbul Airport but also solutions for waiting lounges, air traffic control tower, offices and common areas.
A Unique experience
Nurus has distinguished itself from its competitors worldwide which produce airport seats and has signed an agreement with IGA to cater to passenger needs today and in the future. To date, Nurus has delivered over 26,000 Eon Terminal seats to Istanbul Airport. The Eon Terminal product is manufactured at Nurus’ own production facility in Ankara which is equipped with advanced machinery and the latest production techniques. A separate production line was installed, and all the seats were produced within 3 months. To meet the needs of the age of technology, Nurus Links® connection points which include plugs and USB ports are integrated to the coffee tables and in between the seats of Eon. Therefore, it allows you to charge your devices, use your laptop or watch a movie while waiting.
The Eon Terminal seat, which is a German Design Award winner, is manufactured to be robust and long-lasting to withstand many years of daily use by thousands of passengers. Eon Terminal is ergonomically designed and produced from a single piece of polyurethane which provides comfort by its flexible structure and inclined backrest. The gap between the seat and the backrest is designed to make cleaning easier, to help with security checks and to allow visibility to be able reach any dropped belongings of passengers. Eon allows you to form any needed configuration with its adjustable seat, table and armrest arrangements.
Additionally, there is a need for relaxing areas for transit passengers, those whose flight was delayed and those who must wait during long lay overs at the airport. Therefore, Nurus designed and produced Eon Recliner seats to help passengers relax before take-off.
Special furniture for technical spaces
Nurus Design Lab designed and developed special console tables for the Istanbul International Airport Traffic Control Tower according to needs and expectations of air traffic controllers. The adjustable-height console has angular moving monitor arms to allow the user to adjust the screen according to the reflection of the sun. Furniture pieces found in the Security Operation Center and the Airport Operation Control Center also produced by Nurus as well.
Waiting is no longer boring
Unifree Duty Free and its partner Gebr. Heinemann operates a 53,000 sqm retail space at Istanbul Airport. Aiming to provide a complete experience to its customers, the Unifree Duty Free waiting areas are furnished with Loca and Pinto from Nurus. The modular design of the Loca and Pinto allows the product to be used in various configurations. By bringing convex, concave or flat forms side by side, it is possible to create different seating areas. On the other hand, if the capacity of the seating needs to increase due to passenger traffic, it is possible to do so by adding new units.
New offices for the new airport
In addition to relaxing waiting lounges, Unifree`s offices, where approximately 2,000 people will work, are located in a total area of 100,000 square meters in different zones at the Istanbul Airport and all the furniture needs of Unifree employees have been met with Nurus products.
