Greenpoint Technologies (Booth A72) is presenting at EBACE a 1/20th-scale Boeing Business Jets BBJ 777X model showcasing its Zen interior concept, a design offering “an exclusive retreat for the sophisticated jet setter seeking a profound connection with nature,” the U.S. completion center said.

Taking inspiration from the graceful flow of a Japanese Zen garden, Greenpoint designers incorporated organic elements including biophilic features and sustainable, natural materials to cultivate a serene and harmonious environment. The result, the company said, “is a modern and technologically advanced aircraft cabin epitomizing tranquility.”

“The Zen interior delivers luxury and relaxation in flight, seamlessly integrating connectivity and bespoke details that elevate it beyond traditional business jets,” said senior design director Annika Svore Wicklund. Notably, the design is short-listed for the Private Jet Design Concept Award in this year’s International Yacht & Aviation Awards.

Offering the most interior space of any civil aircraft, “the design possibilities are limitless” with the 777X, said Wicklund. Meanwhile, the VIP and head-of-state completions market has shown renewed strength recently.

“Over the past year, we witnessed a steady recovery and restored confidence in the VIP completion and refurbishment markets, and a significant increase in head-of-state programs,” said Chad Thorne, v-p of sales and marketing.

Underscoring that trend, clients have recently awarded Greenpoint two VIP 787-9 green completions, a BBJ refurbishment, and multiple head-of-state programs. Capitalizing on the growing demand, Greenpoint’s design team “continues to develop custom interior concepts catering to the unique requirements of our diverse clientele,” Thorne said.
