the embraer manhattan is an art deco-inspired business jet


the ‘manhattan’ luxury jet channels 1920s american glamour while drawing inspiration from the art deco movement. created by the embraer’s vice president of interior design, jay beever, in collaboration with former disney ‘imagineer’, eddie sotto, this airplane concept embodies deco-sophistication. the ‘manhattan’s’ dark blue exterior mimics the style of a pinstripe suit, looking right at home soaring above the new york city skyline.

the embraer ‘manhattan’ business jet’s deep mahogany wooden panels, brass and gold trim, and rich jewel hues provide the backdrop for the interior. artwork in the entryway includes a distinctive metallic mural, reminiscent of the iconic art deco mural in the empire state building. guests can meet in the ‘cloud club’, a  luxury lounge with décor inspired by the chrysler building. the club features a cosmopolitan style bar with retractable bar stools, vintage sconces and a mohair / lambskin divan. a note-worthy feature of this space is the panoramic city loft window inspired by jean-michel frank’s minimalist designs.
