- Outdoor & travel
Do not merely fixate on your destination, but enjoy the journey just as much. In some contexts, it might be a corny saying, however, in the case of Aurora Saboir it is an absolutely justified advice. Namely, the designer focuses on luxurious private jets that dwarf a standard airplane. Allow us to take you along to the Gulfstream G650ER, a design that does more than bringing you from one point to the other.
Real luxury is rarely loud. This is a fundamental given for Aurora Saboir Design, since the results she presents her clients with are always a real hit full of sophisticated wealth. The latter is something all designs have in common, and naturally, this time is no exception. The customer desired a timeless elegance, which was a good steppingstone to a palette of warm beige shades and comfortable earth colours. Here, softness is a fixed passenger. Considering that the selected tones are all similar, the surprising elements can mainly be found in finishings and textures. For instance, veneer was an ideal material to guarantee enough character, while marble effect was the choice par excellence for the tabletops. In projects like this, the art is mainly to maintain a homely ambience on a limited number of square metres. Rightly combining colours, searching for the right degree of softness, and employing finishings that elevate the whole: the designer does it all.

Furthermore, she deems it essential to handle lighting correctly. The armatures that she installs, need to be very functional yet simultaneously answer to the decorative standards, and support the well-being and circadian rhythm of the passengers. Here, she opted for little table lamps that automatically make the interior of the private jet appear more homely. The simplicity is in the seeming ease with which the whole came to be. Nevertheless, the preceding process has been less easy, because it takes a lot of precision, expertise, and a clear vision to obtain a beautiful result like this. In addition, each commission brings along specific challenges. This time, the designer explains, it was an interesting challenge to find a solution for a visionary ideas, such as having 3D embossed panels running through the ceiling. Seeing that, here, they were used on a curved surface, this introduced an interesting opportunity for further innovation. Her favourite aspect of the entire design? The wood effect on the back of the seating. This place is often neglected by designers, while it is an element that can make a big difference. Designing a private jet offers more possibilities than you might think at first. The work of Aurora Saboir is an ideal example of this. With her luxurious projects, it is anything but a problem to drift off to far places, or somewhere high above the cloud deck, perpetually in between two destinations Images courtesy of Aurora Saboir Design
