How's this for high-flying luxury?

A team of designers have won an award for their interior concept created for a private Boeing jet. 

The Retreat by Greenpoint Technologies gives a radical Mother Nature vibe to the jumbo jet, thanks to LED walls and a ceiling with a golden river running through it.

The design won the Private Jet Design Concept category at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2022.

"It is an honour to be recognised amongst the industry's most esteemed designers in the International Yacht and Aviation Awards," said Annika Svore Wicklund, Greenpoint Design director. 

"Retreat is an original Greenpoint Design interior, and this award showcases the immense talent of our entire team. Together we achieved a timeless, elegant interior equipped with progressive technologies and luxuries inspired by a world-class spa retreat."

Greenpoint's Retreat interior features a timeless, interactive main cabin ideal for socialising, relaxing and entertainment. 

Oversized, outboard-facing OLED monitors display curated videos of the destination, views from external high definition (HD) cameras or in-flight entertainment.

Key design elements include white, high-gloss architecture accented by sustainable oak, tactile velvets and scalloped details. 

Organic greenery and soft LED lighting are diffused to promote a rejuvenating atmosphere. 

Inspired by flowing water, the cabin ceiling features a panel system with a high-gloss metallic finish reminiscent of a river meandering throughout the interior.
