Lufthansa Technik has teamed up with Mercedes-Benz Style to design and develop an integrated VIP cabin concept for short- and medium-haul aircraft.

The concept departs from the traditional separation of ceiling, wall and floor, instead offering a spiral layout in which these three areas flow into each other seamlessly.

“Our goal is to offer a highly discerning global clientele a standard of interior design that leaves nothing to be desired, says Walter Heerdt, senior vice-president VIP & executive jet solutions at Lufthansa Technik.

Under the design, the cabin windows are concealed by black panels which appear to float in front of the window. Mercedes-Benz’s Magic Sky technology allows the panels to be dimmed electrically from black to transparent. Displays and touch screens for entertainment and information can be integrated into the black panels.

In the coming months, the two companies will jointly evaluate the general level of customer interest in the concept.
