Orbit refines the clunky airline trolley

Orbit refines the clunky airline trolley

Air travel in cattle class often leaves something to be desired, and not just on the part of passengers.

Orbit is a concept for a better airline trolley by UK designer Heather Dunne.

It's designed to save space, with its narrower elongated profile, and its form incorporates a clever shelving system in which fresh boxes move up to the top once a shelf has been emptied. And to avoid awkward maneuvering or accidental bumps, the Orbit would be attached firmly to the floor, running along set tracks.
