the return of moderne design
Gatsby is great again in this exclusive new concept. With Embraer's flagship Lineage 1000E as a canvas, Manhattan is modeled on the luxurious ocean liners and art deco design of the 1930's, and takes the town by recalling the elegance of a bygone era in it's many entertainment zones. The Cloud Club bar, inspired by the rooftop hideway within the spire of the iconic Chrysler Building, lives again, but at a much higher altitude. The interior furnishings are inspired of the great American and French designers of the age such as Norman Bel Geddes, Gustave Ruhlmann, and Jean Michel Franc. Images ©Embraer
sketchbook and inspiration
Embraer Executive Jet's VP of Interior Design, Jay Beever was inspired by the spacious luxury of Ocean Liners like the SS Normandie and the Queen Mary and the elegance of the Art Deco period. We were thrilled when he asked us to bring our period expertise into the charter jet layout they were envisioning. Here are designer Eddie Sotto's "thumbnail" hand sketches and research imagery that inspired the Manhattan.
