Just when we convinced ourselves that a yacht could fly, why not think bigger? We questioned everything about what luxury was and came back with "complicated simplicity". Luxury should be frictionless and more casual. Capture the solitude and privacy, the romance of the wide open spaces. and after all, aren't the skies the last frontier of privacy? We saw an opportunity to really create something elegant, but relaxed. Enter Skyranch One, your escape in the sky. We are designing this concept to respond to your changing needs with interchangeable elements to the seats allowing you to easily customize them to your taste or comfort. Just release the strap and switch out armrests or add an iPad pouch. We were inspired by the layering of european saddles and came back with the modular seats you see here, surrounded by hand engraved controls, bleached woods, woven leather, inlaid horn, english wool and other rich materials that sooth to the touch. Skyranch is a state of mind, so the design can be adapted to a variety of aircraft and is bespoke to you. If you do not see what you're after, we can work with you and the completion center to deliver the "wow" you are looking for. We're used to it. The image below depicts the Skyranch looking it's best in Embraer's Flagship Lineage 1000e. Watch the video below.
SkyRanch One has been shortlisted for Best Concept Design in the upcoming 2017 Yacht and Aviation Awards in Venice, Italy.
The simplicity and elegance of bleached woods, hand tooled leather walls, inlaid horn windows, soft wool, light gray leather and open air. The Aspen color scheme is just one of the choices you have in tailoring your SkyRanch. Hermes "burlap" inspired wall coverings acoustically respond to keep the peace.
Design should not exist for it's own sake, and on Skyranch One we strive to select finishes and design details that tell a composite story every time you encounter them. If it's in a catalog, it's not on board. That seamless continuity is what experiential design is all about. From the Bison horn Beer Tap / faucet and inlaid onyx counter that sets off the galley, to the bleached wood and soft mood lighting throughout, the story is there but never gets in the way.
Back in black and bad to the bone in each window. The softest stitched suedes and leathers come together in a seat you won't want to leave. Horn legs suspend the tables, panoramic windows are paneled in tooled leather to a pattern of your choice. Bleached wood and Hermes burlap surrounds each window with slatted shades.
SkyRanch is more than a state of mind, it's a blank canvas. SottoStudios can adapt this concept to any aircraft or refit. However, we recommend the Embraer option, as this spectacular picture window is exclusive to Embraer's Lineage 1000e, largest in private aviation. Our modular seating concept allows infinite combinations which are also conducive to the Embraer configurations. We visualize everything in 3D first to explore every option. Our talented team at Lightbox brings our ideas to life in a way that goes beyond renderings, they are so real, they're slices of life. Browse our concept gallery below and get a sense of what can be.
