F/LIST's wood flooring and stone products grace Boeing's first BBJ 787

F/LIST GMBH, a global manufacturer of high-class private jet and yacht interiors, is featuring its F/LIST Wood Flooring, F/LIST Stone Flooring and Stone Monument products on Boeing’s first BBJ 787 Dreamliner with a custom VIP interior.

The business jet was on display at this year’s EBACE in Geneva, showcasing F/LIST products in its Entrance and Hallway, Master Bathroom, Dressing Room and Guest Lavatory.

Kestrel Aviation Management defined the aircraft specification, oversaw the design, engineering, fabrication and installation of the cabin, and encouraged the completion centre, Greenpoint Technologies, to provide F/LIST with the opportunity to supply its bespoke products for the 787 cabin. “F/LIST worked closely with Greenpoint to develop the ideal flooring and lightweight stone vanity solutions for our aircraft and, as can be seen, the results are extremely impressive” said Stephen Vella, Kestrel’s Managing Director.

F/LIST built the components in its Austrian facility after first templating the flooring at the Moses Lake, Washington completion centre and then later overseeing the final installation of the monuments and flooring at the centre.

The impressive 40-passenger interior was designed by Pierrejean Design Studio Paris and includes a forward master suite with bedroom, an expansive lounge area and a guest cabin with first-class passenger seating. All areas feature a palette of neutral brown and grey tones - just as the 216 ft² fumed oak F/LIST Wood Flooring in the guest lavatory, entrance and hallway leading to an open rotunda with dome ceiling.

Also featured are F/LIST’s lightweight stone products. F/LIST Stone Flooring underlines the interior in the Master Lavatory highlighted by a large dual-sink vanity with real Crema Marfil Marble stone veneer. F/LIST furthermore manufactured the stone cabinets in the dressing room and guest lavatory.

“We are very grateful for this unique opportunity to feature our products”, says F/LIST CEO Katharina List-Nagl. “Especially the expansive flooring constructions with different tiling concepts were a welcome challenge for our team. Seeing this project come to life was a great experience for us all. The result is breathtaking. We are proud to say that Kestrel was right placing their trust in our products and experience.”
