Loher’s Lounge Galley Is a Bright Take on an Old Subject
The galley of a single- or twin-aisle executive aircraft has rarely been a particularly passenger-friendly place. Welcome to 2011 and the “VVIP Lounge Galley” from German design firm Loher Raumexklusiv. The Wallersdorf-Haidlfing designer has come up with a sophisticated art deco design concept introduced for an A340 at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg. The Art Deco creation incorporates master-crafted precious materials and includes a bar counter, teppanyaki grill and induction cookers. A sliding red onyx marble worktop conceals the cooker and extractor hood after use. There are also professional kitchen appliances integrated into the back wall. The coffee machine, microwave and induction ovens vanish when desired behind flexible glass light panels finished with an onyx look.
