Jeweler Patrick Mauboussin is working on a new jewel: the plane, or more precisely, the business jet. Then, he renews with historical creations of his family for aviation, like the mythic M120 Corsaire or the Fouga Magister. The very new signature PATRICK MAUBOUSSIN AIRCRAFT DESIGN will have an influence on the interior and exterior aircraft design.
The designer is working out a new concept: “Flying is an art”, a real philosophy; indeed, it redefines the principle of flying. At the same time a business tool, a way to escape or an air link between people, the air travel is also a question of art, according to Patrick Mauboussin. Thus, life on board must be rethought, and passengers must feel rested and refreshed after their journey, feeling better than when they boarded. Comfort, peace of mind, body relaxation as well as confidentiality are so essential that they are studied as seriously as each detail to ease the journey.
But that is not only about decoration. Patrick Mauboussin works as a conductor, paying attention to choose the best technologies. There are two stages in his work: find the best in each scope and “compose”. The expertise of the jeweler is used in aviation to satisfy the demanding customers; moreover, it enables the company to meet the highest quality standards and all requirements. The latest technologies are used to suggest a range of equipments like: relaxing armchairs, affusion shower, hidden walking, simulator of dawn, electronic attenuators of noise, humidifiers and diffusers of essential oils.
“I am going to attempt to strengthen the individualized ergonomics. Armchairs will be adaptable to each body and will have to allow the best comfort in every position”, promises Patrick Maubousin in evoking the future Seat One.
All five senses will be taken care of with some therapies like the light therapy, the color therapy, the aromatherapy.
“I want to be attentive to every individual, to bring to everyone all the personalized solutions on board. For me, a plane is “a house in the sky”. Everyone has to take pleasure in his house”, explains Patrick Mauboussin. Humanism and quality of service are key words.
His first creation was the painting of the Airbus A320 Corporate of Masterjet, “Nile Spirit by Patrick Mauboussin”. This aircraft, in 26 passengers version, will be available for charter and certified public transport by the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency), a very first time for such a configuration (bedroom, lounge.). This plane raises a very new skin, which underlines its fuselage composed with several shades of blue.
