Tapis executives are attending NBAA2015 highlighting three new products. Ultrasuede has been selected for seating applications by many luxury automotive brands, and now the product has been selected as the primary seating material on the new Dassault Falcon Jet 5x mock-up (left; image courtesy of Dassault Falcon Jet). “We replaced the seats with Tapis Ultrasuede and got the look of the natural product with the durability of a manufactured one,” said Tina Gricius, senior aircraft interior designer for Dassault Falcon Jet.
Another new product is Tapis’s ink-resistant Ultraleather Pro (right). An ink- and stain-resistant treatment is incorporated into the protective surface layer, to safeguard against the likes of ballpoint pens, food and beverage spills, the transfer of denim dye and other mishaps. It was designed to offer the highest level of protection and cleanability, with a top-quality construction including polycarbonate resins to ensure lasting performance.
Tapis is also highlighting its Woven Collection (left), which builds upon the knowledge of centuries of textile craftsmanship. The company says pure silk, mercerized cotton and fine linen are mixed with performance-driven fibers to deliver the woven beauty, specification and opulence demanded by the luxury aircraft market. The Tapis Woven Collection is hand-picked to embody the luxury feel associated with the highest caliber of interior design.
