Harrows is proud to have supplied a wide variety of furniture into Nelson’s newly redeveloped airport terminal. Designed by Studio Pacific, the impressive structure reflects the beauty of the surrounding region while addressing the need for an improved travel experience. In 2018 Nelson Airport had over 1 million passengers transiting through, making it New Zealand’s fifth busiest airport. The objective of the public space project was to create a space that would enhance customer experience and service, yet stand up to the huge amount of people passing through.
To achieve a space both beautiful and functional while meeting budget, materials were mixed and a variety of spaces were created to cater to the range and scale of travellers. In the foodcourt, sturdy HPL tables and lightweight chairs sit alongside a free standing Ledge Banquette. Upholstered in a buttery tan leather, the banquette offers a relaxed cosiness and luxury, and bringing personality and warmth to the space. With flip power inserted into Classic Leaners and a custom ottoman arrangement serving as both seating and serving, this airport has mastered both form and function.
