About the Artist
For almost 40 years, Pan Am Flight 001 ruled all westbound air travel with a flight that originated in San Francisco and then hopped around the globe, stopping in Honolulu, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Delhi, Beirut, Istanbul, Frankfurt, London and finally landing in New York - 46 hours after its first take-off.
“Flight 001 was a seamless experience. My goal was to design an experience that recreates the thrill of international travel during an era when it was chic and glamorous. Taking cues from airport terminals and aircraft interiors and combining them with sexy materials, Flight 001 came to life,” states Antonioni.
Each Flight 001 store has defined zones with clear iconic graphics marking the different designated areas. A map wall behind the cash wrap, which mimics a ticket counter, displays the difference time zones and actual times of each location (San Francisco store). A feature wall highlights the newest products on window-like discs and suitcases are cleverly displayed in a baggage claim zone. Even the reminiscent storage bins are tucked neatly away in the sophisticated, curved shelving units. Moving comfortably throughout the store, the space has a natural flow through each zone, showcasing the entire collection of travel products.
With the winning combination of innovative design and the eclectic selection of products, Flight 001 is an all inclusive, one-stop travel shop that redefines style on the go.
