When we were hired by Jay Beever, Embraer Executive Jet's VP of interior design to help realize his vision for the ultimate charter experience we were thrilled. He wanted to recall the luxury found on luxury liners of the thirties like the SS Normandie, the sophistication of "The Great Gatsby," and the attention to detail that could only come from the premiere art deco designers of that era. Inspired by the geometric french furnishings and carpets of Gustave Ruhlmann, the streamlined futurism of Norman Bel Geddes, and the composition of Jean Michel Frank, came a concept that could only be called Manhattan. Here are some of the extensive inspirational and research imagery along with some rough concept sketches Edward Sotto generated to inform the design you see in these renderings.
