About OMK

OMK was founded in 1964 by Rodney Kinsman RDI, who began designing and manufacturing much of the furniture for the then-embryonic Habitat chain. In 1980, the company was approached by Jane Priestman of the British Airport Authority (BAA) to design a seating system for the new North Terminal at Gatwick Airport.

This triggered OMK’s move into public seating, and in 1990, it was commissioned once again by Priestman to design a seating system for the future. The result, TRAX, was developed into a highly flexible modular seating system that would be used in more than 200 airports, rail stations and hospitals worldwide.

Company Profile

  • FLITE Modular Seating System

    As passenger numbers increase, the need to provide a higher quantity of seats in existing gate rooms is now a priority. Closely collaborating with industry architects, operators and specifiers, OMK has recently launched a new FLITE system to the market to fulfil the requirements for high-density lounge seating.

    FLITE offers a 10% increase in seating capacity over alternative products, creating a low-cost yet robust seat with a tighter footprint and the rolled front and back panels eliminates the problems of accidental impact injuries.

    The new range is created as a high-density seating solution for next-generation super jumbo aircraft such as the A380.

    The minimalist structure uses a single support bracket and identical-injection, moulded, self-skinned polyurethane seat and back panels available in any RAL colour.

    This simple concept offers advantages for in-house maintenance both in terms of cleaning and easy replacement of individual panels.

    The entire unit may be assembled in minutes using a single tool.

  • TRAX Modular Beam Mounted Seating System

    TRAX is a modular beam mounted seating system, available in continuous lengths from two to seven runs without the need for intermediary leg supports.

    It is an exceptionally versatile modular passenger system, using a standard chassis supplied with OMK’s wide range of seat finishes. This allows the user post-installation flexibility, accommodating changing passenger profiles.

    Optional seat finishes include polyester, powder-coated steel; self-skinned, moulded polyurethane and saddle-stitched coach-hide, which may be fully upholstered in a wide range of materials. OMK also offers various foot and arm options.

    In addition to low-back standard seats, further interchangeable options include high-back, foot rests, group seating pods and integral power / USB charging stations.

    TRAX has been designed to provide maximum visibility for security purposes.

    Seat and back panels can be replaced in-situ using a single tool and are spaced to avoid dirt and fluid retention. The system also allows for a table to be fixed in place of an individual seat.

  • SEVILLE Seating System

    Originally commissioned to compliment Nicholas Grimshaw’s futuristic design for the British Pavillion at the Seville Expo 1992, the Seville bench system has since gone on to win numerous design awards including Millennium Product.

    The SEVILLE bench was designed specifically for short-sit situations where space and passenger circulation is critical, such as baggage reclaim areas. Suitable for exterior or interior use, surfaces are designed to eliminate water and heat retention, making it perfect for all weather conditions.

    Its multi-directional aerofoil seat design makes it suitable for areas where space is at a premium and for use as a platform seat. Utilising interlocking extruded aluminium seat and beam sections, with a self-coloured, durable anodised finish, the individual seat components slide onto the beam and are locked in place by die-cast aluminium end caps, so no other fixings are required.

    The seat may be floor-fixed, wall-mounted or free-standing with optional arms all made from die-cast aluminium with a UV-stable polyester powder coating.

  • Link Dynamic Seating System

    OMK has developed a new lifestyle seating system designed specifically for concourse and retail areas. Link is a moulded polyurethane seat with a unique geometric shape which can be combined to create numerous dynamic configurations.

    Link has an integral steel frame which sits inside a moulded polyurethane cushion. Powder coated steel legs are attached to create a modular unit. A simple linking device can be quickly removed and reattached allowing for easy reconfiguration. Base units can be combined with optional accessories including dividers, tables and charging points to create an endless number of layouts. The open structure allows for high visibility and easy cleaning.

  • Hub Work and Charging Station

    Hub is a modular table that provides a convenient place to work and charge devices.

    It is built around a central steel conduit which routes all electrical cabling and houses unto 4 replaceable power modules. Connection to existing power circuits is simple as Hub terminates in one standard plug making it easy to add to any public space. FSC certified ply wood panels finished with a Fenix laminate are attached to frame.

    Available free standing or floor fixed in a range of colours. Power modules are available in any international socket with an optional USB A and C port for added connectivity.

  • Large Project Capabilities

    OMK has now supplied more than 300 projects worldwide. The company’s products have received around 30 international design awards, with Seville receiving the ultimate accolade of being awarded a Millennium Product for the Future in 2000, and the Queen’s Award in recognition of its outstanding contribution to UK trade in 2016.

    Some of OMK’s most recent successes were in 2014, when the company supplied and installed almost 25,000 seats in Saudi Arabia; OMK was asked by GACA to design a customized version of Trax specifically for the new King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, and has just supplied 14,700 seats for this project along with 10,000 seats for the new Hajj Terminals at Medina.

  • London Head Office and Showroom

    Their head office is located in central London and contains a state of the art design studio with rapid prototyping facilities and the latest 3D CAD systems, in addition their full range of airport seating solutions are displayed in their showroom.
