Privacy Flight Bands

The B-Tourist Strip Increases Comfort While Flying

— May 12, 2014 — Art & Design
Often on a busy flight, privacy is hard to come by and the B-Tourist band by designers Idan Noyberg and Gal Bulka hopes to put an end to this dilemma. The B-Tourist is a multifaceted piece of fabric that is meant to be used in conjunction with airplane seats as a curtain, cushion or storage unit.

Innovative designers Idan Noyberg and Gal Bulka engineered the B-Tourist strip as the perfect accessory for flight passengers. The B-Tourist is a circular strip of fabric that can stretch in multiple ways depending on its purpose. Users can wrap either side of the B-Tourist band around their head rest as well as the seat in front of them. The fabric on either side of the passenger can be extended to create a space of privacy or fastened together to create a comfortable space to lay your head.
