The Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge at London Heathrow airport was completely remodeled and expanded in November 2016. The new space boasts the airline’s gorgeous new design concept created by British design studio Studioisle, which emphasizes serenity and relaxation.
Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge LHR design
The delicate alliance of natural materials—gorgeous cherry walls, limestone floors, hardwood ceilings—along with indoor plants, green ceramics, brass highlights, and Asian touches such as the delicate hanging light fixtures and artwork by Chinese artist Han Feng, gives the Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge at London Heathrow airport a cozy, sophisticated and intimate touch. Luxury abounds, but it’s exquisitely understated—a masterful combination of sophistication and authentic residential simplicity.
Privacy is paramount, with oversized coffee tables, elegant dividers, and side tables between seats. There are also eight “cube chairs”—the latest incarnation of the Solus chair, a wrap-around, high backed chair with a built-in side table, coat hook, power outlet, and USB port. Private individual chairs with ottomans face the floor-to-ceiling windows, which reveal exciting views of the tarmac and North runway.
The attention to detail is second to none—while power outlets are available at every seat, they are embedded in the furniture, discretely tucked in little compartments so as to not distract the eye from the smooth shapes and exquisite appearance of the ensemble.
