What sets the first-class seats in the Audi urbansphere concept apart?
To my mind, their formal aesthetics, beauty and comfort extend an irresistible invitation the moment you open the door. They deliver on that promise with comfort derived not just from their material design but above all from their look and feel. From the very first glance, customers sense that their journey will be relaxing and they can take time out from their stressful everyday lives to enjoy it.
Since they are not immediately apparent, all the functions integrated into the first-class seats then come as a pleasant surprise. Chinese customers like to sit in the rear, so the amenities and entertainment offerings are configured with that mind. This focus is apparent from the moment the passengers embark because the seat in the second row turns towards them, as if welcoming them aboard and making it easier not only to get into but also disembark from the spacious interior.
And what seat functions are you treated to once aboard the Audi urbansphere concept?
Once in their seat, each passenger can manage their own separate comfort zone. They do so with the help of a personal digital assistant who greets them and will, for instance, scan the passenger’s face to determine stress levels based on the size of their pupils. The system then suggests different measures such as mood lighting, music or meditation in Relax mode.
In Relax mode, the seat reclines and the foot rest, which was previously hidden under the seat, slides into position. What’s more, with the privacy collar, occupants can enjoy total me time.
