See Inside Embraer’s $80 Million Bespoke Jets with Art Deco Interiors Inspired by the 1920s and 1930s!
If the exterior of Embraer’s $80 million bespoke jets had you go bananas, wait for you to see the Art Deco interiors inspired by the 1920s and 1930s!
Everyone knows that having a private jet says a lot about your wealth and taste in luxury.
Leaving that modern luxury aside for a bit, Embraer has brought the retro times to the skies with their custom-made Art Deco inspired jets.
And they are not coming with one jet, they are bringing two.
Called the Manhattan Airship and the Hollywood Airship, both of the jets are packed with luxurious details from the 1920s and 1930s that will bring you back to the Prohibition era.
The Manhattan Airship has mahogany interiors with gold and brass details, as well as metallic entry mural that pays homage to the Leif Neandross-designed work in the lobby of the Empire State Building.
The luxurious jet also features a bar that takes design inspiration from the Chrysler Building and a large window that looks like the Jean-Michel Frank designer.
Then there is the Hollywood Airship that was inspired by old Hollywood films, as the name suggests, and features backlit crystal structures, marble detailing, and 3D sculpted leather reliefs looking like the Sunset Tower, Howard Hughes’ flying boat and the cars of the 1930s period.
Both aircrafts were created by the company’s vice-president of interior design Jay Beever, who teamed up with former Disney imgineer, Eddie Sotto.
As you can see each jet embodies a key Deco destination.
The customizable planes, which feature seats clad in mohair and lambskin leather and exotic veneers, were proposed as charter aircrafts.
The planes are divided into five cabin zones with first three serving as open gathering spaces that encourage passengers to socialize, and the salon which is reserved for relaxation and intimate conversation.
The designs are scalable and can be applied to Embraer’s entire line of jets, they conceived for the brand’s flagship model, the Lineage 1000E.
“These concepts are based on existing seating and monument structures, meant for ease of execution and a timely build,” Beever says.
Capable of accommodating up to 19 passengers, the high-tech jet touts the largest in-flight accessible baggage compartment in business aviation, global Internet access, and an optional master suite with a stand-up, two-person shower and bed.
“The Lineage 1000E is one of the largest aircraft capable of operating out of airports like London City, Teterboro, and Aspen, which cater to smaller private jets. This is critical to the Hollywood and Manhattan business plan,” Beever says. “In addition, the Lineage 1000E is known for best-in-class operating costs and dispatch reliability, thanks to its commercial airline platform heritage.”
But everything comes at a price, in this case of $80 million per jet.
