This is a deign concept for in-flight cutlery for Southwest. Not entirely certain on whether it is a realised concept or fictitious.
Nevertheless, it would be interesting to know the specification for this product, in terms of saving space in its functionality with its low profile as well as points surrounding the use of materials and their sustainability and properties.
I hope this concept design is something that any keen designers or architects within the IFC, like me can enjoy and appreciate the way it segues between the airline industry in the real world and product design - a crucial part of many industries and something aviation could not exist without.
