Nike Collaborates With Design Firm To Create A Special Airplane For Athletes
By Tay Xing Wei, 09 Sep 2014
Design consultancy firm Teague has teamed up with Nike to design a customized airplane specially for athletes.
Professional athletes often have to travel for their games and in the course of their journey, the occasional inconveniences and discomforts of flying take their toll, “leaving athletes drained and depleted by the time they arrive at their game”.
The designers focused on four aspects of performance innovation in the interior—recovery, circulation, sleep and thinking. They believe that if these areas are addressed correctly, it will give the athletes an added advantage when playing.
On-board facilities include in-flight biometrics that provide a post-performance analysis on the athletes’ physiological state, a nutrition zone catering to their unique nutritional needs and high-tech equipment that promotes healing.
