Here's a new lexical nugget to ease the hassles and woes of travelers everywhere who would like to be productive while waiting for the flight to arrive: "wayfinding." The word is a catch-all term for navigating the cumbersome media infrastructure of most airports, and it's most apropos of Compass by Arconas-an innovative media tower that integrates public seating with charging stations, workstations, dynamic signage, and display options.
Compass Helps Travelers Find Their Way
The Tower integrates neatly with surrounding clusters of ergonomic seats. Its slim design allows easy display of large monitors around the circumference, not only facilitating airport information (sponsorship flags, gate numbers, arrivals/departures), but also general navigational tools (map building), as well as valuable advertising space.
The workstations feature Duracell Powermat and inPower Flex modules, allowing travelers to make excellent use of their downtime by charging laptops, tablets, and phones, while taking advantage of the enhanced table space to work and eat.
Compass makes good financial sense for airports, as it increases the appeal of the particular airport, while paying for itself through ad revenues in very little time. And the monitors can also be used for live television or other interactive content to meet demand-"and, as passengers spend more time in these seats, airport concessions benefit from increased business opportunities."
About the Manufacturer: Arconas has made their reputation on consistently offering varied forms and exciting manifestations of "exceptional public seating." If you've traveled through a major airport during the last 40 years, chances are you've had an up close and personal experience with Arconas seating. The company's wares can be found in LAX, Hong Kong International, JFK, and other airports around the world.
