Chalet - Etihad



Chalet - Etihad


Creating a stand-out chalet at Farnborough Airshow to emulate a first class lounge


National airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways approached us to design and install a 120 sqm chalet at Farnborough Airshow that would emulate the luxury of their first class lounges and continue to position them as a leading player in the airline industry.


The chalet was designed, manufactured and installed in three weeks from start to finish using the highest specification of materials ever used at Farnborough Airshow. Marble floors and mosaic tiled bathrooms coupled with bespoke furniture and lighting provided Etihad with a luxurious onbrand experience for their visitors.

During the show, the airline placed one of the largest aircraft orders in the history of commercial aviation. The total deal for up to 205 wide-body and narrow-body planes was worth approximately $43 billion.


Chalet - pilatus




Large Stand - Pilatus


Bringing the ‘Crafted in Switzerland’ brand message to life


We partner with Pilatus across their global flagship airshows including Farnborough, Paris and Avalon.

Pilatus represents some of the best of aerospace engineering; products that are number one worldwide in their niche sector with a brand that has always stood for Swiss quality, precision and innovation.


The booth design for the company encapsulates this: portraying the brand story and creating the Pilatus experience on-stand for their customers.


Our bespoke designs range from large 120sqm exhibition stands to two-deck chalets, incorporating hospitality areas, VIP entrances, private lounges, meeting spaces and corporate entertainment areas.





Hospitality experience - Euro Jet

Pitch Concept


Creating a hospitality experience for a 10 year anniversary

Leading provider of aircraft ground support services, Euro Jet, planned to celebrate their 10th anniversary at EBACE 2018. They required a hospitality experience (in a 50sqm space) rather than an exhibition stand to celebrate this important milestone including a bar to host 80 people, private meeting room to accommodate up to six people and more.


As part of Euro Jet's 10th anniversary celebrations, we created a hospitality experience, including a VIP area and an ambient bar that can work as a day time exhibit but transforms into a party environment at night. We suggested circus performers on the night of the celebrations and the invention of their own ten-year cocktail to make the celebrations even more memorable.

“Our CEO said that this is how a design brief should be approached, and that you really thought about the project as a whole and as an experience, not just creating a design. And you involved us every step of the way.”

Marketing Manager, Euro Jet





Modular - Valence


When intelligent design makes a big difference to a smaller space


Valence is an aerospace-industry world leader in product-finishing and in the plating and chemical processes involved in surface technologies - working across the commercial, defence and space sectors.

The 59sqm stand featured an LED-lit top-side wrapping around the whole stand, with a giant ‘V’ supporting corner that plays on the brand logo and is highly-visible from a distance.


“The stand re-uses some of the kit we first developed for Valence in Paris. This is part of our sustainable model for clients, where the use of a modular beMatrix system, which we hold in warehouses around the globe, ensures that costs are always contained. Wherever possible, we also use local companies to prevent extra shipping costs and to be more environmentally-friendly. New, bespoke elements ensure the stand look and feel is fresh, including counters, headers and metalwork.”

Jonathan Brooks, 3D Designer, Ignition
