SOLUTION

Bendix King, an avionics sub brand of Honeywell, approached INDUSTRY to implement a future facing hardware and software design language. We brought this to life through a series of reference products that bridge physical and digital interactions for the future of flight.

PROBLEM

How do we navigate the shift from physical cockpit controls to seamless digital interfaces in an often turbulent environment?

APPROACH

We created a global design language that seamlessly transitioned between the digital and physical worlds. We designed key hand-anchoring features to drastically improve the control of contextual digital interfaces during flight turbulence. We elevated Bendix King’s presence as a trusted avionics pioneer with iconic design to create modern heritage.
