IXION Windowless Jet Concept
This windowless jet project was created specifically for , and was shown at the 2013 NBAA business aviation show. It was also a winner in the 2014 International Yacht & Aviation Awards in the Exterior design category.
“The ethos of the project is simple, to challenge current thinking, and propose something a
little different but not just a fantasy. It has to be credible and relevant, yet provoke
discussion”. Gareth Davies, Design Director at Technicon’s French Studio near Paris.
“I challenged the team to break out of conventional thinking with regards to a business jet
exterior and interior. Whilst defining the concept sketches for the exterior, I asked the rest
of the team to start thinking about interior concepts and what we could do differently.
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 on flexible screens, which cover the walls and ceiling of the cabin, via external cameras.
The user experience is greatly enhanced by directly engaging the passengers with the
environment outside, giving an unhindered panoramic view .”
