EBACE, Geneva: Airbus Corporate Jets and the Italian hypercar Atelier Pagani Automobili are showing a new cabin design for the ACJ319neo, called Infinito.
A key feature of the Infinito (infinity) cabin is its sky ceiling, which can bring a live view of the sky above the aircraft into the cabin, or display other images, in order to create a feeling of airiness and space.
“Art and science can walk together hand in hand: this is the Pagani philosophy. The combination of state-of-the-art composite materials never used before in an aircraft, such as CarboTitanium, with the typical design language of Pagani Automobili, has always represented our signature. Applying our Reinassance touch into the wider spaces of Airbus corporate jet cabins is the beginning of an exciting new venture for us,” said Horacio Pagani, founder and chief designer of Pagani Automobili.
“In bringing together the best of the supercar and business jet worlds, we enable an elegant and seamless link for customers of both, while bringing a fresh approach to cabin design and satisfying very demanding standards,” commented Airbus Corporate Jets managing director Benoit Defforge.
According to he designers, the curves inspired by nature form a pathway through the cabin, as well as featuring in the shell-shaped valances and walls between zones – including one between lounge and conference areas, which switches from opaque to transparent at the touch of a button. The décor is reminiscent of Pagani hypercars, with natural soft-leather carpets and a wooden floor contrasting with man-made carbonfibre in furniture and wall-frames.
Sculpted metal features, mirroring those found in Pagani hypercars, feature in light-fittings and other details, while light-emitting diodes (LEDs) enable different mood-lighting ambiances.
