Gulfstream Aerospace’s product support organization has created private-label fabrics, leathers and carpets for cabin interior refurbishments. The curated collection of in-stock soft goods will shorten the lead time and cost for interior refurbishments, Gulfstream said. There are more than 100 fabrics, 25 carpets and 25 leathers in the collection, which includes three color palettes: beige, tan and taupe. Lead time for Gulfstream Portfolio Collection carpets, for example, is one day versus about four weeks for open-stock selections.
The award for design excellence is presented annually by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Center for Architecture, Art and Urban Studies in Dublin, Ireland.
Cabin interiors specialist Lantal is probably best known for its carpets and upholstery, but the Swiss company also has just launched its new Pneumatic Comfort System, which it says makes seats more passenger-friendly. The system’s pressure-adjustable cushions have been in service with Swiss International Airline’s business and first-class long-haul aircraft for the two years and are now available for more widespread use.
