Mercedes-Benz Style Is Now Designing VIP Aircraft Cabins Too

Lufthansa Technik and Mercedes-Benz Style have announced a collaboration on the design and completion of VIP aircraft cabins.

Their joint project will be showcased at the EBACE 2015 (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition), which takes place from May 19 to 21 in Geneva. The VIP cabin concept is described as “entirely innovative, luxurious and integrated” and is designed for short- and medium-haul aircraft.

The concept ditches traditional interior cabin design for dynamic architecture. This means the traditional separation of ceiling, wall and floor will be entirely replaced by a dynamic, spiral layout, giving rise to new, independent spatial zones without the typical arrangement of seat and wall elements.

Mercedes’ typically strong emphasis on contrast in terms of material, color and lighting reinforces the sense of space, with the overall design being recognizable for the Mercedes-Benz brand. For example, the cabin windows are concealed by so-called black panels, which, inspired by the screen design in the Mercedes‑Benz S-Class, appear to float in front of the window like a light corona.

The two partner companies want to target the cabin concept at a private global clientele “with a strong affinity for unique design.” Lufthansa Technik will handle the customization of VIP and VVIP aircraft in order to integrate the unique design with the particular requirements of an aircraft cabin.
