Imagine a Yacht that can fly. That's what Eddie Sotto, the great WDI Imagineer show-producer of Main Street at Disneyland Paris, the Theme Building restaurant at LAX Airport, the L.A Rivera restaurant, and much more, has designed through his company Sotto Studios for Embraer. The plane is called Skyacht One and soars with it's hand painted "trompe l'oeil" mahogany "hull" and towering vertical stabilizer. Let's have a closer look to Eddie's new wonder with pictures and Skyacht One description, but first let's watch this video in which Eddie himself will present to you the gorgeous Skyacht One.
The description and pictures below comes from the Skyacht One website HERE, Eddie is famous for the attention he gives to details and as you'll see, it's the case more than ever in Skyacht One!
Skyacht One™ is based on the Embraer's Flagship Lineage 1000E aircraft and directive—Innovative Luxury—permeates every detail in the cabin. The first impression is no exception. A planetary Clock lies embedded in a marquetry mural inspired by the 15th Century Ducal Palace's Studiolo of Italy. The rug is Fornasetti, and the Galley is appointed to evoke the portable luxury of the British Campaign style. Custom hardware sets off the personalized embossed leather. On closer inspection, the bulkhead walls are planked and pegged as on a Yacht. The closer you look, the better it gets. Why should real luxury be confined to the ground or the sea?
As passengers spend so much time in a plane seat Eddie think that the "close up" experience should be unsurpassed. So, he revisited things passengers touch and made them intuitive, beautiful and classically textural with bejeweled controls from engraved brass, gold, silver and platinum. When they'll reach out in the dark to turn a light on, there is still nothing better than the feeling of a fine knob or lever. They just work. From the brass inlaid window bezels, each with mahogany surround and panelling, to the adjustable vintage styled leather sunshades, the skies never looked better.
Skyacht One main cabin is expansive and gorgeous with a Chesterfield Sofa and Cocktail Bar for watching television or surfing the net. Seating is lavish, flanked by inlaid paneling and window "portholes" lined in brass, nickel and mahogany. Platinum Controls are bejeweled and simply operated. Shagreen "Stingray" skin lines the valances and tabletops, while Skyacht's ribbed structure of inlaid brass and wood span the cabin with adjustable lighting.
The Captain's Quarters is intimate, fiercely romantic and lined in padded suede, underscored by bookmatched Macassar walls and paneled ceiling. Authentic detail abounds. 14th Century Star maps are the inspiration for the silk Cellarius Carpeting, while Skyacht's signature Armillary Sphere is softly inlaid on the secret sliding door. Reading lights adjust up and down the ship's trusses, while a flat screen TV faces opposite. A ring of Skyports line the ceiling. Attached is the matching bath and shower.
Skyacht One's Master Bath is second to none. It features a bejeweled "throttle" inspired faucet with a lit gauge that controls temperature over a walnut and gold sink. Edge lit bronze mirror softly bathes the space while adjustable spotlighting tasks the working areas in addition to a brass framed window. The walls are lined with matte finished teak and mahogany, held tightly by brass fittings. Contrasting the woodgrain, green Malachite countertops and Shower lend a deep elegance. Vintage Fornasetti Accessories accent our own platinum Skyacht hardware.
