Mercedes-Benz and Lufthansa Technik announced at EBACE 2015 that they will collaborate on the design and completion of VIP aircraft cabins for short- and medium-haul aircraft.
Combining Lufthansa Technik’s extensive experience on custom VIP and VVIP aircraft with Mercedes Benz design style will certainly appeal to clients looking for creative interior to their private jet.
The two companies will move away from the separation of ceiling, wall and floor in favor of a dynamic, spiral layout. This will give emphasis to new, independent spatial zones without the usual arrangement of seat and wall elements.
Design details such as the furniture flowing with the cabin interior and panels that can be dimmed from black to transparent will be featured. Displays and touch screens for entertainment and information can also be integrated into these black panels.
In the near future, the two companies will gauge customer interest on the VIP & VVIP market, in addition to refining the design concept.
