Aviointeriors, an Italian manufacturer of airline seats, has developed the Janus Seat in response to the need for increased separation between passengers on public transport. Like the Roman god it is named after, the Janus Seat faces in two directions. The design reverses the centre seat in a cluster of three seats, separating all three passengers with a shield that encloses the reversed seat. The shield creates a protective barrier for passengers, preventing contamination between adjacent seats. The seat shields are made from a material which is easy to sanitise and comes in varying levels of transparency.
