ETIHAD AIRWAYS HAS partnered with local designers to upcycle obsolete aircraft cabin interiors into pieces of art, as an environmen­tally friendly alternativ­e of dealing with waste. Carpet and fabric rolls, emergency equipment, sidewalls and windows, and Economy and Business class seats are just some of the old aircraft parts designers Azza Al Qubaisi and Christine Wilson used to design art installati­ons for the airline. These art installati­ons are not only some of the most magni cent upcycled art pieces but also a new way to make the world a more sustainabl­e and environmen­t friendly place to be in. Etihad is displaying the art pieces at Etihad Headquarte­rs and hopes to commission similar work in the future.
