Starlight Headliner – Bringing the starry sky inside Rolls-Royce

A Rolls-Royce not only attracts attention with its dignified appearance but also in the details around the car. Each model is carefully crafted, and the most familiar elements are always the Spirit of Ecstasy, the Pantheon Grill, and the ‘Double R’ monogram. Unless the windows are boldly colored (or curtained), pedestrians can also appreciate the splendor that residents enjoy from the many luxury appointments.

However, one feature that is not easily seen by outsiders (especially during the day) but is easily noticeable in the presentation is the Starlight title plate. Now part of the Rolls-Royce logo, the Starlight title, in the spirit of Mark’s dedication to fulfilling the wishes of his patrons, has begun as a reservation request.

It comes from a Rolls-Royce customer who suffers from photophobia (extremely sensitive to light) and can only enjoy reading the daily newspaper under the stars on his country farm. So he asked them to create a similar environment in his Rolls-Royce.

As almost nothing is impossible for the experts in the Bespoke department (and it has been proven in many cases), designers, engineers, and craftsmen have devised ways to recreate the pieces. Bespoke Collective Cabin’s star on the ceiling. They embedded less than 800 stars, creating a starry night sky, providing the client with just the right level of illumination, allowing him to read while traveling.

The customer received his Phantom in 2006 and not only allowed Rolls-Royce to advertise the Starlight title but also offered similar features to other customers. Thus, born is an alternative to the Starlight title line that has improved over the past 13 years. It can extend to the full length of the roof, and the intensity of light emitted by each star is different to reflect the night sky better.

The design of the Starlight title is unique to each customer.

The constellations of each Starlight title are entirely unique to the customer. One customer requested that the lights be configured to represent the Major and Minor constellations while another requested that the Rolls-Royce monogram be illuminated separately from the rest of the stars. Some may enjoy watching their loved ones glow from above. Whatever the customer wants, Bespoke Collective will make sure they get it.

It usually takes nine hours to create, but a personalized template requires its own template, which can take up to 17 hours to complete. Two Rolls-Royce craftsmen have combined their skills to create this remarkable feature. It is the perfect combination of traditional craft and modern technology.

The unique effect of the Starlight headliner is achieved by mounting fine fibers at different depths and at different angles – so that the light can escape in many directions and at different intensities. First, the skin is punched from 1,400 to 1,600 pores, each pore is carefully calculated. Threads of yarn, which are hand-cut at different angles to achieve a blinking effect, are placed by hand in this hole. The manufacturer then ensures that the strands lie perfectly on the visible surface of the skin, ready to shine.
