The innovative company has made many headlines. In 2011, Edése Doret designed the first VIP Interior for an Airbus A380 which transformed a Lockheed L1011-500 into a “Flying Casino”, the first of its kind.
According to Defend.ht,
Edése Doret was born in Haiti and raised in the Bronx. At the age of 30 he opened his own specialty interior design business that made him the first person to ever design a private interior for an Airbus A380, and the chosen designer for billionaires and dignitaries all over the world.
The Airbus A380 is the largest passenger airliner in existence. It has two levels and enough room for 600 passengers. Edése Doret has been given credit for being the pioneer of luxury travel, changing the way the wealthy traverse the world whether by airplane in Airbuses or by water in yachts and cruise-liners.
His clients include rich Angolan and middle eastern oil firms, the Kuwaiti airforce, celebrities and many heads of states. “All of my private customers are billionaires,” Doret said in an interview with Uptown Magazine.
“It’s almost a hip-hop way of designing,” he also told the magazine talking about his non-traditional approach. Instead of carpet, he prefers to use wood or marble floors, he favors freestanding structures such as entertainment centers to break up the interior space instead of walls. Doret is one of the only African-American independent aircraft designers in the world.
