The check-in and the gates counters, designed by Studio Gnosis and supplied by Arcadia for the first series and by Paolo Castelli spa in the technically advanced version, have been redesigned as identifying elements of the SEA brand. The design focuses not only on simple and soft geometries but also on the value of noble metals thanks to brass and copper coverings supplied by De Castelli that expertly treated them through oxidation processes and manual techniques. Counters are usually considered purely technological and operational made of cold or synthetic materials, but in this project they acquire a familiar image as if they were a piece of furniture of our homes. Besides the high quality of design and materials, great attention has been paid to the needs of operators and all passengers, thanks to a careful study of the ergonomics of the bench, without forgetting all the technologies needed for boarding operations. The project scrupulously follows the principle of “universal design” where an equal accessibility is guaranteed for both able-bodied people and those with reduced mobility or the elderly ones (PMR). The sliding shelf is inserted into a side element whose shape incorporates the Sea logo, harmonizing with the counter and offering a pleasant image as a whole.
Antonio de Martino - Gnosis "A fundamental aspect for the making of this project was the great synergy among all the actors involved and in particular with De Castelli, that immediately showed great willingness to make this experience available through the artisan quality of its products, contributing to the achievement of a unique result in the context of an airport project.
