ACTIU furnishes the waiting area of the Chisinau airport in Moldova

Contract and office furniture specialist ACTIU has supplied a number of its PASSAPORT benches for the waiting areas of the Moldova's main international airport, located 13 km southeast of the centre of Chișinău, the capital city. Read on and see how waiting for a flight could be less stressful than you think…

Designed by ITEMdesignworks for ACTIU, the PASSPORT benches have been chosen by the Moldavian architecture studio AF Architects for the departure lounge and waiting areas of the newly-remodelled Chisinau airport. Drawing inspiration by the natural beauty of the country, the firm has designed spaces which are modern, comfortable, bright and airy. The use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, and the creation of a microclimate, which allows interior gardens (insular and vertical) to flourish, have contribute to create a pleasant, fresh atmosphere which adapts perfectly to the latest design trends for spaces destined for high traffic and intense use.

The PASSPORT benches were specified in an intense green colour, which complement perfectly the materials and the soft tones of stones while adding a fresh, natural vibe to the space.

PASSAPORT is an airport and public waiting area seating programme specifically designed to provide large public spaces with comfort and functionality. Its individual seats are generously-sized and ergonomic to ensure comfort and promote good posture. Special seat for disabled users are also possible.

The system is supported by an extruded aluminum central beam, which is reinforced by an internal frame and side panels of moulded aluminum fixed by pressure or screwed.
