ORIENS (lat. sunrise) is a motorglider concept.
A plane with reinvented lifecycle based on the cradle to cradle principle. It combines an ecological energy concept and sustainable materials, with an organic design language and bionic inspired details to rethink and optimize the way motorglider are built.
The whole concept consequently follows a transparent design language, to reach an intensive flight feeling. To be associated more with a paraglider or a hang-glider and reach an intensive flight experience.
The transparency offers the opportunity to explore formal solutions for parts that are normally covered by the fuselage.
