Winner in the 2014 International Yacht & Aviation Awards in the Exterior design category
Once again, a great team and excellent design push the boundaries. The Technicon Design France team received an award for their IXION windowless jet concept. They came up with ideas on how to make your flight even more exciting.
“We quickly settled on the controversial yet interesting idea of removing the windows from the cabin and using existing or very near future technology to display the exterior environment to the inside surfaces of the cabin via external cameras,” says Gareth Davies, Design Director at Technicon’s French Studio. “Removing the windows allows for weight reduction, simplifies construction and opens up an enormous spectrum of possibilities for interior design. We wanted to couple this with amorphous solar panels which power the low voltage systems on board and thus offer a unique visual dynamic for the exterior.”
To demonstrate Technicon’s creative design, digital modelling and visualisation capabilities in the transportation design sector, the Windowless Jet proposal was first conceived for the National Business Aviation Association show.
