Feargu O'Sullivan rounds up the good, the bad and the ugly of public transit seating options.
Seat cover designs, we believe, need to consider four things:
• Memorability. They need to be striking enough to create an instant impression. • Freshness. Moquette needs to be bright enough in color to appear new(ish) after years of wear, but not so pale as to make stains or fade evident. • Intricacy. Large empty monochrome spaces show wear more quickly, and provide too tempting a canvas for vandals. • Anti-Dazzle. Moquette shouldn’t be so bright and busy that it turns stomachs.
