Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner commercial jet combines eco-awareness with sleek design. A curved, upswept interior architecture creates a sense of open space, heightened by broader seats and wider windows, while a novel climate-control and filtration system does wonders for the typically dry and stale quality of on-board air.
Traditional pull-down plastic shades are replaced by electronic window dimmers, and the unique lighting system is designed to replicate natural light. Its eco-conscious reputation, meanwhile, is due to its construction - primarily from carbon composite, a light plastic-like material - and its new, fuel-efficient engines. The Dreamliner has a carbon footprint to be envied.
