design et al are delighted to announce further shortlist success for Embraer Executive Jets in the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2015. The Brazil-based jet manufacturer will compete with a second project in the Private Jet Design category – Legacy 500/450.

EM Brch-01 - L500 - Composition 02

Launched in October 2014, the Legacy 500 is the game changer of the business jet industry. The interior design takes the high-tech capability of the cockpit (fly-by-wire / glass cockpit) into the cabin zones.


A blend of state of the art technology and meticulous, detail oriented craftsmanship makes it a modern, comfortable and user friendly environment. Large glass panels in the valance sections feature touch-screen control and information monitors that merge modern styling with improved ergonomic function as well as reliable redundancy.


Storage zones on the side ledges open like jewel boxes, framed by complex shaped machined accents. Floating surfaces allow for tasteful separation of materials that are crafted in the spirit of individually tailored elements chosen by the Owner.


All this wealth of interior exploration is governed by an overlying architecture that uses GD&T principles for maximum fit and finish and accessibility reducing assembly and maintenance cost.


This new look introduces high-tech elements in regards to user interface as well as manufacturing and assembly methods and maintaining a comfortable, high luxury environment. The architecture allows for an increased variety of material combinations coming close to a one of a kind design tailored to each individual customer.
