Etihad Airways has partnered with local designers to deal with waste in an environmentally friendly manner. The designers will upcycle obsolete aircraft cabin interiors into art. Carpet and fabric rolls, emergency equipment, sidewalls and windows, as well as seats, are among the parts artists Azza Al Qubaisi and Christine Wilson will use to design art installations for the airline.
Azza Al Qubaisi is an Abu Dhabi-born, Emirati sculptor, whose first art piece used seat floor mounting rails as a building motif to create symmetric geometric formations. Christine Wilson is an emerging artist from Ireland based in Dubai, who used curtains, wall panels, life jackets and cabin interiors to design a multidimensional upcycled art piece.
“End-of-life parts that were designed for landfill have been repurposed into beautiful art installations by skilled artists who used rare and unwanted aircraft scraps,” said Terry Daly, executive director, guest experience, brand & marketing, Etihad. “By collaborating with artists from the local community, our goal is to not only showcase talent within the region, but to further encourage sustainable innovation that’s good for the environment.”
