Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. and the Gulfstream G500 have been awarded the 2021 International Yacht & Aviation Award (IY&AA) for excellence in cabin design. The “Performance and Polish” G500 entry gained the top honours in the Interior Design/VIP Completions category.
“This is the fifth year in a row we have earned an International Yacht & Aviation Award, and I am proud of our amazing Gulfstream team of designers and artisans that brings creativity and imagination to our ultramodern aircraft,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Every Gulfstream cabin is the product of collaboration among our interior and industrial design teams and the craftsmanship of the men and women who build the custom cabin elements by hand. Our combined focus on performance, innovation, quality and artistry sets Gulfstream interiors apart.”
The Gulfstream G500 Performance and Polish interior design conveys the aircraft’s high-speed capabilities and mimic the smooth flight passengers enjoy while flying in the aircraft’s stylish, comfortable cabin. The award-winning design was achieved through a play on contrasts in colour, content and composition: linear patterns juxtaposed with sweeping movement; plush upholstery balanced with smooth, sleek lines; ebony furniture contrasting with ivory upholstery; and a carpet that blends the two. The combination of Gulfstream innovation and artistry is also evident in the award-winning seat design, advanced ergonomics, handcrafted furnishings and hand-tailored finishes.
The award-winning tall and wide G500 cabin offers interior designers great flexibility. In addition to the bespoke interior, passengers flying aboard the G500 benefit from 100% fresh, never recirculated air, industry-leading low cabin altitudes, whisper-quiet sound levels and 14 Gulfstream Panoramic Oval Windows.
