APTO developed the concept and branding and designed the first Grab & Fly for HMSHost in 2013 with the purpose to do a rollout over multiple locations. HMSHost is one of the world’s largest providers of food and beverage services for travelers. The design of the Grab & Fly unit had to be new, fresh and streamlined, so passengers can easily grab their goodies, take a run and still catch their plane. On top of that, the design is an eye catcher for every airport. It is produced as a prefab method, completely paramertical designed and digitally fabricated to fit any location. Meanwhile, Apto’s design of the Grab & Fly unit is being spread all over Europe’s airports.

From learning to sharing knowledge
The process of dreaming to a successful prototype has been a true adventurous journey. Integrating the processes of programmatic planning, design and construction has been a ongoing challenge. As Apto we believe it is important to openly share knowledge about important learnings and helping society move forward. Therefore we educate students of the TUDelft during yearly sessions.
