Paperclip Armrest to Solve Armrest Sharing Issues in a Plane

It must have happened with most of you – sharing or fighting for an armrest with a fellow passenger. The situation might have become awkward at certain instances, but a new concept design called the Paperclip Armrest will likely take care of it in coming times. It has been designed on a simple basis which effectively doubles the space and grants two passengers a chance to use the same armrest simultaneously. This new concept armrest has been designed by James Lee of Hong Kong­based Paperclip Design. He has already won various awards for his innovative aerospace design concepts like the Crystal Cabin Award and many others to name. His design, the Paperclip Armrest is already patented in the U.S. and UK and has also won prestigious awards such as the Good Design Award and Red Dot Award. It may take some time for its entry into the aviation arena, but till then it can be used in theaters, multiplexes as well.
