No more fighting for the window seat: Technicon Design create windowless plane

The award winning Ixion windowless jet designed by Technicon Design is exactly that – a private aircraft with no windows. Instead, the walls and ceilings are covered in screens. However, the lack of windows would actually enhance the scenic views according to the designers.

“The user experience is greatly enhanced by directly engaging the passengers with the environment outside, to the point of exhilaration by giving an unhindered panoramic view from the inside. Parallax barrier technology allows the passengers to see different views at the same time on the same screen”, Gareth Davies, Design Director at Technicon’s French Studio said.

Through using existing and near future technology passengers will be able to view the exterior environment on the screens via external cameras. As well as this, passengers can choose to view pictures from other sites if they so choose.

Technicon Design said that not only will the interior views be improved, but removing the windows will also improve the structure of the aircraft itself.

“Removing the windows allows for weight reduction, simplifies construction and opens up an enormous spectrum of possibilities for interior design,” Davies said. “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.”
