Gulfstream's G700 has earned a 2020 International Yacht & Aviation Award for its flagship's all-new seat design. The Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600 received the same accolade in 2018. “I am proud of the Gulfstream team that worked diligently to build on our excellence in cabin comfort,” says company president Mark Burns. “Behind this award is a team of the industry's most talented engineers, designers and craftspeople, who combined innovation and artistry to create a seat that is both comfortable and beautiful. It's a perfect complement to the Gulfstream cabin experience that enhances wellness and increases productivity.”
The G700 Classic Seat features a wingback silhouette updated with intricate details and curves that reflect the overall G700 cabin design and architecture. The seat was designed for increased customisation with side and back paneling that customers can choose to accent with veneer, paint, leather or textiles. Customers can collaborate with Gulfstream designers and artisans to choose their materials and explore the multitude of design possibilities available through stitching, piping and other personalisation.
To create the seats, Gulfstream's research and development team started with a clean-sheet design that they matured through modelling and extensive comfort studies, resulting in organic, anatomical shaping that enhances comfort for all body types. Artisans at Gulfstream's seat shop bring the designs to life with customised bolstering, trimming and hand-stitching, ensuring the durability, beauty and comfort of the G700 Classic Seat.
