Tai­lor-made in flight

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - CONTENTS -

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. Vi­sion­naire is in­stead a brand of IPE Srl, a com­pany from Bologna founded in 1959 by the Cavalli fam­ily, which later be­came part of the in­vest­ment sphere of the Er­gon Cap­i­tal Part­ners III group owned by the Bel­gian Baron Al­bert Frère.
