Jet Aviation announced today that the Jet Aviation Design Studio was awarded first place in the Interior Design / VIP Completion category of the 2023 Design et al Yacht & Aviation Awards. The company won for their design of an ACJ319neo interior redelivered in March this year.
The Jet Aviation Design Studio worked closely with the customer and customer’s interior architect, Colin Radcliffe, on a contemporary Art Deco design for the narrow-body aircraft.
The brief was for a space suitable for both relaxation and work, with a large main cabin with dining and lounge areas, a separate office which can be fully enclosed, and an aft master suite with full bathroom.
Throughout the cabin a monochrome palette executed in dark woods and tiling contrasts with beige and gold upholstery and finishes.
The design is complemented by complex details entirely hand-crafted on-site at Jet Aviation in Basel, such as the statement ‘sunburst’ marquetry in the bulkhead.
This intricate piece features over 180 ‘rays’ composed of four different veneers (two light and two dark) separated with brass inlays of 3mm. Each piece was individually placed and manipulated by hand to ensure a seamless finish.
“Congratulations to the entire Jet Aviation Completions team,” says Christoph Fondalinski, vice president completions at Jet Aviation.
“This achievement was a result of the seamless collaboration between our design, engineering, production and installation teams, and all of those who support them behind the scenes.
“I am incredibly proud of this interior, which demonstrated our capabilities in bringing a complex and detailed design to life with beautiful hand-craftsmanship and exquisite attention to detail at every stage.”
The Yacht & Aviation Awards are an annual design competition held by Design et Al.
The awards are decided by votes from the industry, readers of Design et Al, and the public and were presented at a ceremony in Venice on June 9.
“It is a fantastic achievement to see our work recognized by our industry peers and partners in the Design et Al Yacht and Aviation Awards,” says Grischa Schmidt, senior director of the Jet Aviation design studio.
“The Awards are always an important industry event, and I would like to thank everyone who voted for us, and everyone in the team who made it possible for us to be shortlisted. I would also like to thank the customer and their interior architect, who put their trust in us to turn their idea into reality in this beautifully conceived interior.”
