Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 win prestigious IDEA/Brasil 2010 Design award

Embraer’s two newest executive jets honored, as were the Phenom family and the Lineage 1000 aircraft in 2008

São José dos Campos, August 2010 – Embraer’s newest executive jets, the midlight Legacy 450 and the midsize Legacy 500, have followed the entry level Phenom 100 and light Phenom 300 jets, as well as the ultra-large Lineage 1000, which won the IDEA/Brasil design award in its first edition in 2008. The IDEA® (International Design Excellence Awards) program is the premier international competition honoring design excellence in products, ecodesign, interaction design, packaging, strategy, research and concepts.

“The importance of design to executive aviation must never be underestimated, and for this reason we, at Embraer, are especially honored by the IDEA/Brasil award and the accompanying recognition by the design industry,” said Humberto Pereira, Embraer Vice President, Engineering – Executive Jets. “The Company continues to bring innovative and distinctive products to the market, reflecting its engineering and design philosophy.”

IDEA/Brasil is the stage that comes before the U.S. edition of the IDEA Award, one of the most important and highly reputed design competitions in the world.

IDEA/Brasil is considered to be the gateway of Brazilian design to the international market. The North American award was created in 1980 by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) for the purpose of recognizing and awarding the best products, packaging, and industrial
design concepts created by the world’s professionals, as well as prototypes by students.
