Interior design of luxury helicopter was done at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Como, Italy.
The EC145 "Mercedes-Benz Style" helicopter has been unveiled at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition 2011 (EBACE) in Geneva.
The flying Benz was built by aviation group Eurocopter, which partnered with Mercedes-Benz design to create the interior space of this unique helicopter, destined for a European customer.
The interior design was made to augment the helicopter's luxury-class travel offering and features many design cues from Mercedes-Benz including the use of woods and ambient lighting.
The seats are also fixed onto rails but can be moved or removed depending on needs. The cabin can be configured to seat up to 8 passengers.
The design was created at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Como, Italy, where the brand's head of design, Prof. h.c. Dr. Gorden Wagener, oversaw the project.
Said Wagener: "The interior design of the EC145 ‘Mercedes-Benz Style' helicopter represents the classic passion of the Mercedes-Benz design language and fulfills the very highest expectations in terms of elegance, luxury and comfort."
