GDR is a managed roster, meaning we are constantly working to maintain current information on each studio and designer.

We welcome you to Global Design Roster and hope you find it helpful.

Our clients say that they can truly feel the Uniqueness.
UNIQUE offers tailored, custom solutions, which respect maintenance and operational needs, appreciating that an aircraft’s main purpose is to be a comfortable and efficient transportation tool.

What We Do: We interpret your inspiration to craft a custom design for your aircraft. From choosing quality, maintenance-friendly materials to hand-selecting each distinctive detail, we deliver what you envision, and more.

 

Our Mission: Our mission is to eliminate the complexity of aviation interior design by combining inspiration and expertise to balance elegant design and regulatory restrictions. Our solutions-driven process and years of experience ensure our clients' travel, whether business or leisure, reflects who they are and who they aspire to be.

 

The Founder: With more than a decade of experience in interior design and the aviation refurbishment process, I’ve learned how to combine sophistication and craftsmanship with the practicality of aircraft guidelines and restrictions. 

 

My role is to transform your aircraft with a stunning interior and exterior while navigating any challenges on your behalf. 

I began my career as an aviation interior designer and refurbishment expert and held various roles that allowed me to develop a holistic approach to interior design for aircrafts. I love the extra level of problem-solving required to negotiate the intricacies of planes and associated regulations, and it’s allowed me to provide the best possible recommendations for my clients during the design process. From a completely redesigned interior and exterior to a simple refresh, my custom solutions and experience will be the difference between what is practical and what you dream of.

Agnes Guiu

For many years, I have worked in both the fields of private aircraft interiors and mega-yacht design. Our clients have included foreign heads of state, billionaires and private companies from around the globe. Having enjoyed many years initially with PDS, I am now in private practice as an independent. I enjoy every moment of my activity as a creative designer and feel extremely privileged to share ideas and work in collaboration with highly skilled people where the top result can be realized.

 

It is always rewarding to see our customer's satisfaction when the aircraft is delivered and stimulating to imagine what their flight experience will be as the asset enters service.

 

My personal philosophy is that design is 'synergy.' It is all about listening, creating, sharing and giving. We have to understand, often within only minutes what the client has in mind - what is their vision and what are her/his expectations in terms of space, colour harmony and the specific usage of each area within the cabin. How can we best create the ideal layout for a perfect passenger experience. How can we create a real osmosis between light and space. How may we subtly integrate the  latest technologies, propose original combinations of materials, work hard to realize maximum ergonomy for a final beautiful and welcoming cabin interior. I thank all our previous clients, suppliers, colleagues and friends while working at PDS and all my future clients for their support and confidence as we begin the next chapter. For Agnes Guiu Design, the best project always lies ahead !

He founded the company PIERREJEAN in Paris in 1975 and has since then completed a wide array of projects for renowned companies across the world.

Richard Roseman

Richard (Rick) Roseman founded RWR Designs in 1992 after being a private presentation consultant to a local aviation design studio. The experience was so rewarding he decided to launch his own studio. Rebranded as Richard Roseman Airborne Design in 2016, the studio's work has taken them from VVIP aircraft, to Yachts, Palaces and top-tier Business Jets. RRAD has completed three Boeing Business Jet projects including a 747-8 for the Emir of Kuwait, completed at the former Associated Air Center in Dallas. Other projects include a 747-SP for President Shaik Zayad Bin (UAE), a BBJ for Royal Jet (Abu Dhabi) and one of Boeing's first BBJs for Orbit Aviation (Zurich). Other aircraft projects include a Gulfstream 550, a Gulfstream 650-ER and a Bombardier Global Express, the latter of which led to an Airbus A-319 and extensive work on a Palace in Mumbai for the same family. RRAD also completed four yacht projects through the late 90s and early 2000s.

 

Rick Roseman is the founder / director of RRAD as well as Founder & Publisher of JetCabin Freshbook Magazine. As a student of Art, Design and Interior Architecture in Texas, Mr. Roseman embarked on a career as an interior illustrator which eventually led to a contract with the former Reese Design (Austin, Texas). Over a span of almost ten years, Reese was the sole contracted studio for eight VVIP aircraft for the Sultan of Brunei. The now legendary run of back to back VVIP aircraft kept Roseman busy preparing extensive rendering presentations for all eight aircraft. The rewarding collaboration with the Reese studio inevitably led to the formation of RRAD and a career-long love affair with private aviation, including co/founder of JetModa Magazine and his current JCF Magazine.

Yves Pickardt

Yves Pickardt was born in Monaco to German parents, who had settled in Paris.
With a father who was a filmmaker and aviator, a mother who was an actress, an aunt who was a dancer in America and a great-uncle who was a famous painter in pre-war Berlin, he had a wonderful start to embark on an artistic career with a strong taste for aviation.
This he did, after studying interior architecture and design in Paris, from which he graduated from the École Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d'Art.
The multiculturalism of his origins and training was affirmed when his career began in Italy, the country of the arts par excellence, whose birth in the nearby Principality of Monaco had revealed to him very early its immense creative wealth.After ten years spent in Rome with the great Italian decorator Anna-Laura Angeletti, he returned to Paris to begin a collaboration with the late, world-famous decorator Alberto Pinto that has lasted 33 years. With these two stars of international decoration, he worked for more than forty years for the most prestigious and demanding clients around the world.

Mr. Pickardt contributed to the creation of Alberto Pinto Aviation Interiors department 23 years ago and, since then, the aviation order book has never been empty. From Gulfstream, Bombardier Global and Dassault Falcon business jets, to Airbus ACJ319 and 320Neo and on to Boeing 737 and 747 BBJ aircraft, Yves Pickardt has designed more than 30 interiors, some of which have won awards, such as the Airbus A320 NEO for Acropolis Aviation, recently recognized as "Best of the Best 2021" by the prestigious Robb Report magazine in New York.
