Mercedes Benz Partners with Lufthansa to Create Spectacular Luxury Airplane

At first glance, the interior of this private jet doesn't look an airplane. It instead resembles a luxury hotel suite or an impeccably-decorated home. But, this is actually a new design concept as part of a collaboration between Lufthansa Technik and Mercedes Benz. Their idea is a stunning departure from the conventional plane interior, and it has a gorgeous visual flow paired with modern furnishings.

The purpose of the collaboration was to fuse the Mercedes design style onto the Lufthansa Technik aircraft. There hints of the car company's influence within the scheme. The windows are concealed by black panels, which are inspired by Mercedes Benz S-Class screens. And, using their Magic Sky technology, the panels can be dimmed electronically from black to transparent.

“Our goal is to offer a highly discerning global clientele a standard of interior design that leaves nothing to be desired,” explains Walter Heerdt, Senior Vice President VIP and Executive Jet Solutions for Lufthansa. “Whether for private or business use, our modular completion concept perfectly fits every purpose.”

This special concept made its recent debut at the 2015 EBACE (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition), an event for those involved within the European private aircraft industry. It's not currently slated for a wider release, but the companies will asses the level of consumer interest in the coming months.
