A recent business trip had us observing design from New York to Austin. While the differences in these two cities is obvious, we found a common thread in the design of their airports and the plane that travelled to and fro. From geometric fabrics and bacteria patterned walls, to granite floors and Eames seating, there was a consistency that was oddly comforting as we travelled from one American microcosm to the next.
