Gulfstream Aerospace, with its 'Performance and Polish' G500 entry, has been awarded the 2021 International Yacht & Aviation Award for excellence in cabin design, gaining top honours in the Interior Design/VIP Completions category.
“This is the fifth year in a row we have earned an International Yacht and Aviation Award, and I am proud of our amazing Gulfstream team of designers and artisans that brings creativity and imagination to our ultramodern aircraft,” says Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Every Gulfstream cabin is the product of collaboration among our interior and industrial design teams and the craftsmanship of the men and women who build the custom cabin elements by hand. Our combined focus on performance, innovation, quality and artistry sets Gulfstream interiors apart.”
The Gulfstream say its G500 Performance and Polish interior design conveys the aircraft's high-speed capabilities and mimics the smooth flight passengers enjoy while flying in the aircraft's stylish, comfortable cabin. The award-winning design was achieved through contrasts in colour, content and composition: linear patterns juxtaposed with sweeping movement; plush upholstery balanced with smooth, sleek lines; ebony furniture contrasting with ivory upholstery; and a carpet that blends the two.
