Our Task

Task

Aston Martin Racing required a design for a race day telemetries desk for the Le Mans 24 hour team.  In particular, a key requirement was that the desk had to fold down into a mobile transit cube.

First of all, the desk was designed to comply with ergonomic standards, utilising the front of the cube which transforms into the desktop.  Also, the unit has three screens which fold away for transit.

The main construction is of melamine faced MDF, which is then skinned with CNC routed aluminium composite.  Finally, carbon fibre vinyls are applied to all faces.
