BBJ Max 7 – Genesis Unique by Boeing Business Jets & Sky Style
The BBJ MAX Genesis Unique concept draws inspiration from elements of nature and uses the BBJ MAX’s generous space to render a peaceful cabin where passengers want to stay and spend time and connect to the outside environment through which they travel. Genesis Unique uses LED lighting to generate a starry night sky, sculpted valences inspired by lenticular clouds, and curved monuments to evoke rolling hills in a calming passenger space. In BBJ MAX’s Genesis Unique, the passenger will never feel confined to a traditional tube on their 15-hour flight, but rather be inspired by beautiful surroundings, wherein they can relax, dine, sleep, shower and prepare for the next day in full-size, luxurious comfort.
Lightness, flow and integration are the main design premises. Each cabin area smoothly transitions to the next using continuous curved cabin features, which take full advantage of BBJ MAX’s unparalleled space. BBJ Genesis Unique’s colour palette is evocative of a Middle East theme, with elements such as Arabic lanterns and warm gold decorative patterns and details.
Innovation is key to this concept, highlighting spaces that transform at the touch of a button, including a wine-glass rack that lowers from the ceiling and a partition that unfolds to separate the office and owner’s cabin from the rest of the plane. An imaginative twin dining table allows the passenger to transition from working to enjoying a fully served meal in seconds. Importantly, current generation technology and light-weight materials are used throughout the cabin and allow implementation today.
The design works so well because it seamlessly integrates every cabin zone into a single, continuous, luxurious and liveable solution. Each zone allows separate living spaces in peaceful surroundings for work, play, and rest, and incorporate all the modern conveniences demanded by today’s business traveller. Rather than a patchwork of traditional business jet cabin sections, Genesis Unique provides an available design not seen in any other current generation business jet.

Concept Bliss By Sky Style
The design brief for Concept Bliss created by Sky Style was to define an environment that one would never want to leave. The ‘tube look’ often felt within traditional cabin interiors had to be changed, bringing integration, flow and lightness into the private jet concept. A primary focus for the designers, was the sensuality of shapes whilst maintaining a functional design distributed throughout. A perfect balance was met between the main materials used and their expressive values. The shapes, materials and functionality were all emphasised through the styling of lines.
Concept Bliss is directly inspired by elements of mother nature. The sky, stars, clouds, the sand beach, elements we will always be in love with. The design works well because it is easy to read integrating side panels and headliner seamlessly with only a few lines flowing homogeneously with the balance curves. The concept does not start from polarizing inspiration themes, instead it focuses on situations most people like, as such divinely given things. The designers found it important to create the design to be applicable to different platforms, carrying over individual components such as seats and smaller accessories.
