The Best of Aviation Design Vol. V

THE BEST OF AVIATION DESIGN VOL. 5

This Gulfstream G500 reflects the class-leading performance of Gulfstream’s next-generation aircraft through a sporty interior evocative of the aircraft’s high speeds and smooth flights. The passenger experience is achieved through a play on contrasts in colour, content and composition: linear patterns juxtaposed with sweeping movement; plush upholstery balanced with smooth, sleek lines; ebony furniture dancing with ivory upholstery and a carpet that marries the two.

ACCESS is a premium fixed-back reclining lounger with direct aisle access for all passengers, prioritising aisle access over a bed, with a higher cabin density than lie-flat seats. The brief was to create and define a seat that is not a full business class product yet offers an enhanced passenger experience when compared with conventional seating, while also maintaining a commercially beneficial cabin density.

Freestream’s chief design officer Sarah Mespelt Laranga & Christopher Nobles Industrial Design have been shortlisted for Private Jet Design – Concept Award in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards.

Freestream’s chief design officer Sarah Mespelt Larranaga and London based Industrial Designer Christopher Nobles have collaborated on a new, exclusive project for the soon to be released Gulfstream G700. The immediate visual character is expressed through welcoming luxury craftsmanship through the elegant use of wood, leather and marble.

DESIGNER IN PROFILE: IAN DRYBURGH, ACUMEN DESIGN ASSOCIATES

How would you describe your personal design style?
I am fascinated by the way in which people customise their possessions to create a unique reflection of their personal image.

I celebrate excellence in craftsmanship and bespoke design in all aspects of my life, with a very eclectic personal design taste and style. I have even custom designed my car and yacht to satisfy a desire for the one-off and personal expression – design excellence in my opinion always transcends fashion !

Where does your design inspiration come from?
For me inspiration can come from multiple sources. Typically progressive architecture experimenting with new materials, consumer products and automotive design which marries style and technology are a perennial source of inspiration.
