"We wanted to create a functional, hygienic and elegant user experience. This is exactly what we were looking for."
Elin Kjartansdóttir, Architect
Keflavik Airport, Iceland provides a natural link between North America and Europe, and prides itself on delivering a modern, streamlined travel experience.
“We wanted to create a functional, hygienic and elegant user experience,” explains the terminal’s architect, Elin Kjartansdóttir. “The old-fashioned dryers take a long time, and do a bad job. We also didn’t want to see water or paper towels on the floor.”
⁺Dry time determined using Dyson test method 769 based on NSF P335 to a measurement of 0.1g residual moisture.
***The environmental impact of electrical appliances and paper towels was measured by Carbon Trust. The calculations were produced using the software Footprint Expert Pro, based on product use over 5 years and using weighted averages of individual countries of use. Dry times for product were evaluated using DTM 769.
