The organisers of the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2022 have shortlisted Greenpoint Technologies' BBJ MAX 8 VIP interior design concept, titled Retreat, for the Private Jet Design Concept award.
The Washington-headquartered business jet completion centre's Retreat interior features a timeless, interactive main cabin ideal for socialising, relaxing and entertainment. Oversized, outboard-facing OLED monitors display curated videos of the destination, views from external high definition (HD) cameras or in-flight entertainment. Key design elements include white, high-gloss architecture accented by sustainable oak, tactile velvets and scalloped details. Organic greenery and soft LED lighting are diffused to promote a rejuvenating atmosphere. Inspired by flowing water, the cabin ceiling features a panel system with a high-gloss metallic finish reminiscent of a river meandering throughout the interior.
“We recreated the experience of a luxury spa retreat," says design director Annika Svore Wicklund. "The Retreat interior brings together organic forms, live greenery and progressive, intuitive technology. The atmosphere is serene and modern, designed to encourage relaxation and self-care priorities. The result is a wellbeing haven, wherever you are in the world.”
