The cabin of won­ders gives you wings

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - JETS -

They were known as Sil­berpfeil, the 'sil­ver ar­rows' that raced vic­to­ri­ous on tracks all over the world. Au­to­mo­bile tech­nique, el­e­vated by su­perb per­for­mance, co­a­lesced then as now in­side the agone of the F1, within the com­pet­i­tive spirit of Mercedes-Benz rac­ing cars. Beau­ti­ful, in­tense and al­lur­ing, emo­tions fol­low un­usual routes. And they now take flight into the starry sky of avi­a­tion, open­ing doors to a new di­men­sion of pri­vate and busi­ness travel. The sub­tle lan­guage of dy­namic de­sign, tied with stylis­tic re­search and the use of pre­cious ma­te­ri­als, em­bod­ies the ethos of the Mercedes brand, the epit­ome of high qual­ity and func­tion­al­ity. Key el­e­ments in the ar­ray of tech­ni­cal and aes­thetic solutions also of­fered by Lufthansa Tech­nik, who are ever com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing cus­tomised aircraft cab­ins through its VIP & Ex­ec­u­tive Jet Solutions di­vi­sion. Mercedes-Benz and Lufthansa Tech­nik have now joined forces to cre­ate their own def­i­ni­tion of sim­ple, re­fined lux­ury, of­fer­ing high stan­dards in terms of aes­thet­ics and cut­ting-edge solutions to pro­duce an iconic VIP aircraft cabin. Vis­i­tors to ABACE 2017 - Asian Busi­ness Avi­a­tion Con­fer­ence & Ex­hi­bi­tion in Shang­hai will have the op­por­tu­nity to see the com­plete cabin in a vir­tual 3D pre­sen­ta­tion, as well as a scaled phys­i­cal model and sam­ples of the sur­faces of the cabin, the final ver­sion of their ad­vanced sys­tem of VIP aircraft struc­tures. Once in­side, they’ll find a har­mo­nious and clever por­trayal of high qual­ity de­sign in­spired by artis­tic en­gi­neer­ing, in which ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tive solutions co­ex­ist. A spi­ral struc­ture, in­spired by the DNA helix, wel­comes vis­i­tors as they en­ter; floor, walls and ceil­ing seem fused to­gether to cre­ate a sin­gle form and the ele­gant in­te­rior shell houses win­dows con­cealed by so-called ‘black pan­els’ which, us­ing

Mercedes Benz Magic Sky tech­nol­ogy, al­low them to be mod­i­fied elec­tron­i­cally from black to com­pletely trans­par­ent. The pan­els are also able to ac­com­mo­date dis­plays and touch screens for en­ter­tain­ment and in­for­ma­tion. A re­lax­ing at­mos­phere flows through the cabin in such a way that the cos­seted en­vi­ron­ment, en­hanced by the flu­id­ity of de­ci­sive lines, high-end ma­te­ri­als and cut­ting edge tech­nolo­gies, em­pha­sises how the lay­out of a tra­di­tional cabin has been gen­tly re­placed by a lux­u­ri­ous and com­fort­able ‘liv­ing room’. Skil­ful de­sign har­mo­niously swathes the aircraft from en­trance to bed­room, di­vid­ing it into well-de­fined ar­eas within, how­ever, a kind of con­tin­uum. Dis­tinc­tive fea­tures are dark wood in­serts, leather fin­ishes and mon­i­tor dis­plays. The en­trance opens into a cosy area, fol­lowed by a kitchen (store­room), an ante-room and bath­room. The tra­di­tional ar­range­ment of fit­tings, seat­ing and walls is done away with to make way for spa­cious ar­eas that al­most blend into one other, cre­at­ing an or­ganic mono­lithic in­te­rior jux­ta­posed by colours and soft light, a web of con­trasts, dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als and soft hues. All the fea­tures of a true Mercedes. An en­ter­tain­ment area sep­a­rates the pri­vate bed­room with en­suite, which fea­tures a king-sized bed and the crisp lux­ury of padded con­cave walls. The con­cept of space is en­hanced to in­cor­po­rate a bath-bed­room around a shower col­umn with trans­par­ent walls. Lastly, the two com­pa­nies, Daim­ler AG (Mercedes-Benz) and Lufthansa Tech­nik, in a syn­ergy that al­chem­i­cally com­bines in­te­rior de­sign ex­cel­lence with the finest tech­ni­cal skills, have also in­tro­duced a cabin with unique

fea­tures to the ul­tra-so­phis­ti­cated world of aircraft. The VIP aircraft, which would nor­mally ac­com­mo­date 150 pas­sen­gers, has been de­signed for 16 spe­cial pas­sen­gers, us­ing all the solutions that make a dif­fer­ence, verge on per­fec­tion and demon­strate the tal­ent of those who de­signed such a plane. The VIP cabin de­liv­ers crystal-clear sen­su­al­ity, set­ting mod­ern stan­dards of lux­ury ac­cord­ing to unique aes­thetic prin­ci­ples and re­defin­ing the very no­tion of the Mercedes-Benz style, which, to­gether with the in­ex­tri­ca­ble Lufthansa Tech­nik, trans­forms the ap­proach of a pres­ti­gious car brand to a new con­cept of aircraft and pri­vate jets on short and medium-range travel routes. Lux­ury and re­fine­ment con­tinue to fly. As if they were the glo­ri­ous 'sil­ver ar­rows'. From the race track to the starry sky. Higher and higher.
