Private aviation continues to undergo exciting upgrades thanks to Embraer’s designers. Business travellers can now enjoy two new Art Deco–inspired interiors for the flagship Lineage 1000E business jet: the Manhattan Airship and the Hollywood Airship. For these projects Embraer collaborated with designer Eddie Sotto, as it did on the Skyacht One and Skyranch One cabins.
The Manhattan Airship boasts elegant dark wood flooring and panelling, a metallic mural of the circa-1930s New York City skyline, and the Cloud Club—a spacious lounge area with a bar with retractable stools, vintage sconces, and a mohair-and-lambskin divan under a city-loft-style window.
The second option is the Hollywood Airship interior with lighter and warmer tones, and chrome and marble accents throughout.
Leather accents on the walls and headliners depict Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose, the Sunset Tower, and vintage cars. Each design sports expansive stylistic windows that allow plenty of light into the cabin and offer panoramic views of what’s outside the aircraft.
These interiors are a step up of traditional business-jet interior design, which is typically dominated by simplicity and functionality. Conveying the Art Deco style of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building with a mosaic of the Manhattan skyline, is a first for this type of high-concept design.
