BASEL, Switzerland - Jet Aviation Basel was presented last week with the Society of British and International Design (SBID) International Design Award for the Contract Visualization category for its wide-body "Timeless to Visionary" cabin interior designs.

Jet Aviation's "Timeless to Visionary" designs were launched by the company’s Design Studio in May this year to illustrate a journey from classic, timeless design creation to more visionary and futuristic concepts in cabin interior design, particularly as aircraft manufacturers increasingly introduce lightweight airframes of composite structures.

With more than 400 entries submitted for 14 design categories from 33 countries, the "Timeless to Visionary" design campaign won the coveted Visualization award in the Contract category. The award was presented at the 3rd annual SBID International Design Awards ceremony in London on November 29, 2013.

The Residential and Contract awards for 2013 judges included Tony Hall, director-general of the BBC, Nicholas Candy, chief executive officer and founder of Candy & Candy, Theo Williams, head of design at John Lewis; and David Lewis, managing director of Sunseeker London.

Elisabeth Harvey, manager of the Jet Aviation Basel Design Studio, said: “Our team is delighted and honored to have the TIMELESS TO VISIONARY designs recognized by esteemed industry experts,” “Special thanks must also go to ACA Advanced Computer Art, with whom we collaborated to develop renderings and a video of our designs.”
