THERE ARE ALSO MERCEDES BENZ STYLE HELICOPTERS

Mercedes-Benz Style transfers the brand’s sensual-pure design and high standards of luxury, aesthetics and technological innovation to other areas of life. In 2011 the Airbus Helicopters “EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style” lifted off as the first mobility product beyond the automobile. The interior, which excels with exceptional variability and exquisite materials, was created by Mercedes designers. All the seats are mounted on rails and can be positioned in various arrangements for four to eight persons, or completely removed. The new “H145 Mercedes-Benz Style” is tailor-made for luxury-class business and private travel. To date, ten units have been delivered to customers.

At present the designers are working together with Lufthansa engineers to create a completely new and luxurious cabin concept for short and medium-range aircraft. The classic division between the ceiling, walls and floor is blurred by a dynamic, spiralling division of space. This gives rise to new, independent spatial zones without the typical arrangement of seat and wall elements. The new sense of space is additionally reinforced by Mercedes’s typically strong emphasis on contrast in terms of material, colour and lighting.
