Jet Aviation has announced redelivery of a bespoke interior for an ACJ319neo. The custom interior was designed in-house, and hand-crafted and installed by Jet Aviation Basel.
The aircraft arrived in Basel in July 2022 and was redelivered in March 2023. Jet Aviation Basel offers maintenance, refurbishment and completion. The site has six hangars and can accommodate aircraft up to the Boeing 747. In 2021, a new 8,000 square foot completion center was opened, bringing the cabinet shop, interiors and finishing shops, and sheet metal shops together in one location.
The company says the contemporary art deco interior was created through close collaboration between the Jet Aviation Design Studio, the customer, and the customer’s interior architect, Colin Radcliffe.
It features a monochrome palette with dark woods and tiling, contrasted with beige and gold upholstery and finishes. Within the design is a ‘sunburst’ marquetry in the bulkhead which 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.
“Every interior we create is completely bespoke, hand-crafted by our team of some 200 skilled artisans in Basel, Switzerland,” said Christoph Fondalinski, vice president completions, Jet Aviation. “ This meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is paired with industry-leading engineering and innovation to optimize the sound and weight balance to exceed customer requirements and ensure the ultimate cabin experience in every aspect.”
The cabin features a large living and dining space with custom-crafted ‘wingback’ seating and sofa areas, a separate office with embroidered wall finishings, and an ensuite bedroom with bathroom in golden black marble and beige onyx.
“The customer requested a modern take on the Art Deco period, accented with beautiful, intricate detailing throughout the entire cabin,” said Grischa Schmidt, senior director of the Jet Aviation design studio. “Each piece has been carefully considered to bring its own striking effect as part of one and seamless whole.”
