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
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.
Shagreen panels surprisingly unfold to become barstools at the Cloud Club. Bookmatched macassar ebony piped with nickel and gold accents set off this handsome bar. The Club areas are fully wood paneled, while the rest of the aircraft is in softer hues and leather walls.
The magnificent and exclusive Cloud Club lobby with Mr. Chrysler's tools enshrined in a glass case. High atop the iconic 1929 Chrysler building, it epitomizes the Art Deco industrial style. A prefect inspiration for the Manhattan.
Flanked by alabaster torchere's, Embraer's theater experience is like no other. In full surround and featuring a 4K display, you'll want to finish the movie long after you've landed. Manhattan is about the details as well. Shagreen barstools and Mohair seats reward your closest inspection.
With the help of 4 swivel club chairs facing our luxurious mohair sofa, the art of conversation can now be elevated to a higher plane, as did the salon's namesake, aviation pioneer Santos Dumont. Surrounded by the warm glow of alabaster torcheres, this cozy arrangement encourages a more intimate setting for those sensitive discussions.
Dining in the sky has never been like this. The Manhattan's elegant Crystal Room elevates the dining experience to a new level with inland woods, navy mohair seating, inlaid tables, book-matched panelling and the appearance of glowing crystal.
