The Lufthansa A350-900 been awarded the 2018 best German Lighting Design for its extraordinary cabin lighting.
“Up until now, lighting design has always been the manufacturers´ responsibility. Prescribing the lighting concept ourselves was uncharted territory for us, but we wanted to achieve real added value for our customers – to allow them to sleep better, arrive feeling more relaxed; ideally, to reduce jet lag,” says Dr Reinhold Huber, who is responsible for new customer experience developments.
The lighting concept was designed by the Kardoff engineering bureau in Berlin, and the award was presented to them in Cologne.
As the world’s first airline, on board the A350-900 Lufthansa has installed a range of different lighting atmospheres in order to support the day and night rhythms of their passengers. In total, the LED technology on the A350-900 is being used for around 24 different lighting variations.
