Mercedes Dreams Up a Swanky Interior for Private Jets
May 26, 2015
PRIVATE JETS ARE awesome. They get the well-heeled from place to place at altitudes that put them literally above the hoi polloi. Their interiors are so ultra-luxe, they come with fake fireplaces. But while airborne, you still know you’re inside a plane. A really fancy one, sure, but it doesn’t give one a sense of occasion, a more significant break from the way most of us get around.
If a concept from Daimler (which owns Mercedes) comes to fruition, though, that could all change.
Mercedes-Benz Style (Merc’s design consultancy for non-car projects) and Lufthansa Technik (Lufthansa’s aircraft services biz) have created a new concept for private jet interiors that eliminates the usual linear separation of ceiling, wall, and floor in favor of a “dynamic, spiral layout.”
