June 7, 2019
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced its interior and industrial design teams earned International Yacht & Aviation Awards for the third consecutive year.
“The consistent performance Gulfstream has had in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards is further proof that our design expertise and interiors are ahead of the rest,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “What makes Gulfstream cabins the most beautiful and cutting-edge in the industry is the rich collaboration between our industrial, interior and visualization designers and the artisans who skillfully execute their designs. Together, they merge technology and artistry so our customers have the best cabin experience possible.”
The Gulfstream G650ERTM: Serenity and Style, earned this year’s Private Jet Design award. The winning G650ER design incorporates horizontal-striped quilted seat inserts contrasted with natural gray agate countertops and ebony veneer cabinetry, along with plush mohair divans, silk-accented carpeting and embossed basket-weave and shagreen-patterned leather accents. While customers appreciate the aesthetics of the interior, they also benefit from its technological advancements, including 100 percent fresh air, low cabin altitudes and Gulfstream’s signature panoramic oval windows.
The Gulfstream design teams were also awarded this year’s Design Society International Designer of the Year award. This award recognizes an overall contribution to the industry and excellence in design on an international scale.
Gulfstream earned The International Yacht & Aviation Awards for Private Jet Design in 2018 and 2017 for the all-new Gulfstream G600TM and the G650ER, respectively. The ergonomically advanced Gulfstream-designed seats on the Gulfstream G500TM and G600 also earned an International Yacht & Aviation Award in the Product category in 2018.
