Tailor-made in flight
To fly in beautiful, refined and customised spaces is the request of exclusive customers who desire unique interiors that reflect their style, wishes and needs. The tailor-made design of the interiors of private aircraft and jets has its market and many companies are specialised in this sector, developing astonishing projects. AirJet Designs is a multi-award winning French aeronautical design studio specialised in the personalisation of interiors of aircraft and jets for companies, VIPs and Heads of State. Some of its unique projects include “Aquario A320“, which, not surprisingly, features an aquarium for tropical fish species. The aircraft holds eight passengers with amenities even for long-haul flights and a special area with bedroom and private bathroom with transparent shower that integrates an OLED television screen. The design is minimal and dominated by the colour white, while decorations of marine life, with shells, coral and fish, add colour to the area; the livery also features a tropical flying fish. The "Oasis" project for the Airbus A340 is also interesting and includes a dining area for eight, double bedroom and room for guests with ensuite bathroom. The inspiration behind this design was the desert and the interiors evoke this: the hand-made carpet recalls sand and the golden decorative elements recall palm trunks, while ceiling lights illuminate the ceiling with a blue colour like the desert sky, and Lalique glass falcons (the owner of aircraft practises falconry) provide further inspiration. Another award-winning project is “La Dolce Vita“for a Boeing BBJ1, resulting in an aircraft that, explains Jean-Pierre Alfano, creative director of AirJet Designs, was designed with a strong Italian influence and unites a convivial space with hand-crafted materials. The simplicity of a blend of black, white and gold colours is used on Italian furnishings for the dining, lounge, bedroom and bathroom areas in a sophisticated style.
