Private luxury jets: Mercedes and Lufthansa VIP cabin
The renown car brand couples up with Lufthansa Technik for the top luxury plane in the world
Private luxury jet owners can long for the ultimate flying experience: take the interior design of a fancy hotel or of an elegant New York loft and give them wings. Mercedes-Benz Style, the well-known three star car brand (each point means a link with an element: air, earth, water) pairs up with Lufthansa Technik to deliver a unique VIP cabin for private jets, right after their participation to Monaco Yacht Show 2016, where they presented their very first yacht (read also → Mercedes Benz si lancia nella nautica con Arrow460).
Characterized by a minimal contemporary style, the cabin is extremely elegant and fully technologically equipped. The design is highly reminiscent of car design: the black panels are a clear reference to the latest Mercedes models.
The entrance of the cabin lies in the front of the aircraft: the guest is welcomed in a wide open space area, cosy and elegant, the first part of an emotional itinerary throughout the whole plane. Here lies an open kitchen as well, a dividing wall to ensure privacy and a Vip bathroom. In the rear of the cabin there is the living area, the entertainment room (fitted with special seats and couches) and an extra luxury sleeping area, fitted with a concave king size bed and an inviting transparent shower box.
The design of the entire space is based on a helix shape, as if the whole areas were part of a dynamic spiral. This specific layout was studied to create cosy and independent areas coupled up with fluid and harmonic spaces, in order to guarantee better security and a smoother visual experience.
The Lufthansa Technik and Mercedes-Benz Style team are working to reach a project able to fulfill every safety flight certification.
Certainly not for everybody, but definitely a new milestone in the history of aeronautics.
