F/LIST launches three new decorative finishes to enhance cabin styling
Thomasberg, Austria – 29 September 2021 – F. LIST GMBH, expert of handcrafted interiors for business & private jets, yachts, and exclusive homes, is introducing three new surface finishes to the business jet market. The first-of-a-kind Pure Metal, Fresco Décor and Glass Wood Veneer finishes provide distinctive decorative results, designed to embellish cabin schemes throughout the aircraft.
The sleek Pure Metal Finish employs genuine metals and alloys to produce striking patterns and textures on virtually any surface type and structural shape. Four surface finishes – smooth veneer, fine stippled, coarse stippled and brushed – are currently available in copper, tin, bronze, and brass. In addition, Pure Metal Finish weighs 20 percent less than conventional metal finishes, making it a practical, beautiful addition to any cabin surface.
Introducing organic shapes and forms to bulkheads, furniture fronts, or side walls, the ground-breaking Fresco Décor finish delivers luxuriously embossed, three-dimensional surfaces to normally one-dimensional areas. Ultraleather, Ultrasuede, or other specified soft materials, are fashioned into different shapes, with embossing depths of up to 4 mm, to create subtle light and shadow effects. In addition to bringing natural forms to the interior, the material also has acoustic properties that can dampen sound, making it an attractive and practical surface, for quiet zones, sleeping and rest areas.
For an ultra-deep gloss appearance, the Glass Wood Veneer adds an exquisite sheen to real wood veneers by layering high-tech, hygienic, Aviationglass onto flat surfaces in the galley or wet areas. To create stunning, tailored cabin inlays or graphical highlights on defined surfaces, segments can also be customized with layers of the mirrors to represent corporate logos or other representative images. As interiors become more technology focused Glass Wood Veneer also incorporates interactive technologies to optimize cabin functionality, while retaining cabin elegance.
With the launch of these new finishes F/LIST is expanding its product portfolio to evolve cabin design possibilities. The organic nature of each product supports the creation of dynamic movement and provides the opportunity to add another dimension to interior configurations. The creation of finishes that complement each other, as well as existing aircraft surfaces, amplify the opportunities for enhancing the next generation of cabin concepts, while improving the customer experience, by surrounding them with cabins enriched in form and function.
Certifiable for aviation use each finish is immediately available. “We anticipate that these stunning new options will inspire, aviation designers, OEMs, and completion centres to think even more creatively about interior styling. Cabins now represent offices, leisure areas, conference rooms and homes, often all in one flight, which is why we want to provide our customers with new ways of enhancing them. Interiors are also becoming a significant factor in purchasing decisions and we remain committed to helping our customers make their offerings stand out,” explains Anita Gradwohl, Group Director Customer Relations & Sales of F/LIST.
