SCHOTT® Jade Reading Light
Description SCHOTT® Jade is the first aviation light made from glass, bringing haptic and optical aesthetics to aircraft seats. Designed by PriestmanGoode, the innovation with an integrated ambient light features a sleek glass cover that is as intuitive to use as a smartphone. Modern sensor technology allows passengers to adjust light position and brightness by swiping. The light can be printed with any décor, enabling airlines un- limited design options. The technical product design is also special: thin fibre-optic light guides transport the light from white LEDs at the core to the light outlet, making bulky optical lenses obsolete. This enables a compact design and elegant integration into the seat structure. SCHOTT® Jade – where design and functionality meet. Jury statement SCHOTT® Jade is the first reading light for aircraft seats made just out of glass and is not only aesthetically but also technically extremely impressive. It features intuitive operation by means of swiping as on a smartphone. This provides air travellers with a contemporary technology feel thanks to the improved user experience. Hardly anything has changed in the field of reading lights in aircraft cabins for many years, even though this plays a considerable role in the overall perception of the flight experience. The innovative SCHOTT® Jade reading light is a revolutionary breakthrough in this static area.
