Qantas gears up for arrival of new 'Dreamliner' with the first of many unveilings

Qantas has unveiled a new range of inflight tableware by Australian Industrial Designer and lead designer of the Qantas 787 Dreamliner cabin interiors, David Caon.

The range includes crockery by Noritake, cutlery and glassware. In collaboration with Qantas Creative Director Food, Beverage & Service Neil Perry, David Caon has designed new tableware that is modern, lightweight and practical for customers dining in First, Business and Premium Economy and the Qantas lounge network.

The result is an elegant, 16-piece crockery set crafted from Fine Bone China, a five-piece brush finished stainless steel cutlery setting and a sophisticated collection of modern glassware.

Caon’s objective when designing the new tableware was to combine minimal, classic elegance with quality and functionality.

“There is a fine balance between finding ingenious ways of making a product lighter and compromising its utility or quality,” said Mr Caon.

“Over many months we sought feedback from cabin crew, customers and Neil and the Rockpool team around the functionality of tableware at 40,000 feet. The new crockery in particular, will allow Neil and the Rockpool team to be more creative when designing the inflight menus, give cabin crew more opportunities to interact with customers as well as modernise the dining experience for travellers.”

Qantas Group Executive Brand Marketing & Corporate Affairs Olivia Wirth said the 787 Dreamliner had given Qantas the opportunity to re-design the entire travel experience.

“We have considered everything from cabin lighting, revolutionary new seats and scientific studies to reduce jetlag. We’re now pleased to be bringing together our expert in food and wine with our expert in design to modernise the in-flight dining experience and make it even more special,” she said.

“Aside from aesthetics and functionality, we also tasked David to help minimise our carbon footprint by reducing the weight of the new range by eleven percent, resulting in an annual saving of up to 535,000 kilograms in fuel.”

The range of crockery, cutlery and glassware will be used inflight in International First, Business and Premium Economy, Domestic Business as well as the First and Business Lounges, and Qantas Clubs.

The range will be on board Qantas flights from the first 787 Dreamliner service from Melbourne to Los Angeles on 15 December, and will progressively roll out to the remainder of the Qantas fleet.

H&M reveals new designer collaboration with Erdem

Fashion retailer H&M has announced its big secret: the next exclusive designer collaboration will be with ERDEM, the London based must-have designer loved by celebrities and fashion insiders alike.

H&M is also pleased to reveal that the visionary film maker Baz Luhrmann will bring the collection to life through his unique storytelling.

For H&M, Erdem has designed a brand-new collection for women and, for the first time ever, a collection for men.

Erdem believes in the power of beauty, exploring historical references and personal narratives in every piece he makes. For ERDEM x H&M he’ll reflect and reinterpret the design themes from some of his most celebrated collections, playing with the prints, textiles and delicate craftsmanship that have made his name.

“I am so happy to collaborate with H&M, and to explore my work on a whole new scale including a menswear collection which I have never done before. It’s also such a thrill to work with Baz Luhrmann, one of the most important storytellers of our time,” says Erdem.

“For me fashion is always about more than just clothing, it is a form of expression – a stand-alone art form. I am excited to be collaborating with ERDEM and H&M to reveal the story of this unique collection,” says Baz Luhrmann.

“From the moment we started talking with Erdem about the collaboration, I was captured by his vision. For ERDEM x H&M he has created an enchanting world full of beauty, delicacy and rich details. These are special pieces you will want to wear forever,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Creative Advisor.

ERDEM x H&M will be available in selected stores on 2nd November 2017.
