The first sketch in this pair shows an added benefit to a yoke style steering. Since the user's hands are always resting in one place, control buttons can be added to the top surface and easily accessed by their thumbs, at any given time. The second sketch shows the thought process behind functions such as armrests and storage compartments.

Constructed of plywood and Foam Core, this full-scale mock-up was built to explore the ergonomics, proportions, ingress/egress, etc, for the passengers of this interior. It was built to hold the weight of the passengers so that the design could be properly studied and developed. This collage of images shows some of the functional parts of the interior such as the fold-up seat pans and the slide out I.P. and pedal assembly. Additional functions and details were included in the renderings and sketches.

Here is the final direction for the Breitling interior. This rendering is a translation of the keywords directing this design: Precision, Mechanical Elegance, and Control. 'Precision' describes the Philosophy behind Breitling, 'Mechanical Elegance' describes the aesthetic of Breitling, and 'Control' descibes the functionality and user interface of a Breitling watch.
