Combining the multifaceted usage of air as both a medium and an enabler, the Self-Wrapping Pneumatic Splint provides a simpler splinting alternative to post operation treatment of wrist fractures. Wrapping, compression and immobilization of the fractured area through the simple act of inflation, the result is a piece that embodies the functionality and versatility of air.

The side ledge of the plane is where the passengers interact and carry out most of their activities abroad. Espace De Travail is series of compartmental spaces modelled after the behavioural patterns of business jet passengers during flight. A continuity of shapes accompanied by expressive curvatures of the storage compartments, adds to a more coherent design language and stronger identity for the Falcon series.
