AAAE Conference and Exposition

Tecno will be participating from 16 to 18 June at the 91st edition of AAAE Conference & Exposition in Boston, the exhibition dedicated to the airport industry, and the main event of its kind for the American market.

For its participation at the show, Tecno has selected it novel Linea product and the iconic Aeris bench with integrated io.T The Intelligence of Tecno, together with its expansive range of Pons seats and tables and the comfortable Aura chair.

Airports and train stations are no longer merely places of transit, but rather settings where people are spending more and more time, often while working: the amenities therefore need to be comfortable and flexible, with furniture suitable for different types of users and featuring all the necessary technological support for current devices. 

Tecno has from the onset specialised in seats for high-traffic areas, offering solutions that aim to enhance the experience of passengers who now require increasingly high-level tools and services. The brand is also tackling the new frontier of digitisation, to develop products that are at the cutting edge in this segment dedicated to collective settings.

Design know-how combined with a focus on evolving behaviour, as well as product innovation and ergonomic contents, are what led to the conception of Aeris, a bar-based bench system designed by studio Grimshaw to be extremely versatile and accessorisable. Aeris can now also be integrated with io.T smart technology to liaise with Dina, the portal for smart building and high-traffic location management.

The recent introduction of the Linea micro-architectural programme makes it possible to organise and define spaces in a dynamic, personalisable and reconfigurable way, with the possibility of integrating temporary work surfaces, seating areas for quick breaks and various sized storage units or lockers.

Its modularity, easy assembly and extreme flexibility combine with outstanding comfort thanks to the use of variable density upholstery to make the Pons system of sofas, benches and tables, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, ideal for furnishing waiting areas and lounge rooms, as in airports with their need for functional versatility and reconfigurability.

The Aura chair, designed by Rainlight with an enveloping ergonomic frame, gives a sensation of privacy, concentration and isolation even in large open spaces and high user traffic areas.

Over the years, Tecno has furnished major airports, railway and underground railway stations on an international scale, including: Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, El Prat in Barcelona, SNCF in France, Hamad International in Doha, Stansted in London.
