"In accordance with the original meaning of our trademark the 'Three-Pointed Star' - mobility on land, on water and in the air - it is possible that the portfolio of Mercedes-Benz Style will include the styling of boats, aircraft, helicopters and other transport products," according to the company. "Other products, such as furniture and industrial as well as lifestyle products, will complement our area of activity. The deciding factor is that both the product and the manufacturer match our exclusive design and brand standards."

Mercedes-Benz designers are currently working on the exterior design of a luxury yacht and the interior appointments of a helicopter.
