Nike and design firm TEAGUE have partnered to conceptually design a Boeing 787 tailor-made for elite athletes.

Known as the Athlete’s Plane, the design is built to ensure optimal conditions for travelling competitors – specifically basketball players – and includes recovery areas for rejuvenation,  workout decks, sleep zones and review rooms for analysing post-game data.

It also features biometric monitoring urinals and compression sleeves embedded in the sidewalls.  

After hearing multiple reports of ‘away disadvantage’ from athletes, Nike and TEAGUE interviewed players coaches and operational staff to create the design.
