Airport Series: Shaping the Minds of the Future

We recently had the pleasure of being involved in the development of the brand new Aerozone at London Stansted Airport, part of MAG (Manchester Airport Group) to help create the airport’s flagship on-site education centre.

In partnership with local schools, the exciting Aerozone venture was designed specially for children from reception age, right up to sixth form, with the aim of inspiring young people to consider the varied careers within aviation.

Form worked alongside Jenny Hill, Interior Designer at INGO Interiors to furnish the space, which was once an under-utilised cabin building. The brief encapsulated the need to transform the existing, slightly sad space into an inspiring, bright, adaptable area for various educational activities. The furniture specification was deliberate to enable a ‘mix and match’ approach by the facilitators, to accommodate formal and informal talks, task-based activities and break out/recreational facilitation.

“Form were my first port of call when I approached the Aerozone project for MAG at Stansted Airport. The brief required a clever approach to furniture flexibility, so I knew that their knowledge would be perfect. Form’s specification worked in harmony with my own vision and together we created an educational facility full of life and the freedom that flying evokes in many of us. Both the client and I were highly impressed with the quality, value and design led service and as a result are working alongside each other for another Stansted Airport project. I hope to continue this successful partnership for many more future projects”. – Jenny Hill, Interior Designer, INGO Interiors.
