About Us

Formation creates innovative products for a diverse range of clients. Our focus is new product innovation with an emphasis on challenging assignments. We embrace difficult problems, becoming involved early and remaining engaged until solutions stand on their own. We believe the secret to successful product development lies in lean teams capable of strategic thinking and tactical execution.

Two of Formation’s projects for the aircraft interior market are finalists for the 2016 Crystal Cabin Awards. Formation’s independently developed Formation Design Cabin Concept and Formation’s collaboration with B/E Aerospace, Panasonic and Teague on the Waterfront business class suite have advanced to the finals. We are extremely proud of our team and the effort they’ve contributed to making truly world class products for a very challenging and constrained market.

Formation’s lie flat seating concept was featured on The Runway Girl Network. Runway Girl contributing editor and international journalist John Walton offered a detailed overview and critique of the Formation Seat.

The Formation Seat is a new lie-flat seating arrangement that increases premium cabin density without compromising passenger living space. Read John Walton’s comprehensive piece On The Runway Girl Network.
