THE CONQUEST OF THE SKIES
AIRFIGHT : 1930 – 1980
RESERVOIR takes its inspiration from the universes that have marked the history of mankind from the 19th Century to the present time. Military aviation and its icons – including both the planes that achieved such cult status and the design of the aviation instruments – provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the AIRFIGHT range.
The fighter aircraft’s propellers beat the air insistently on the tarmac. The open cockpit exhales the smell of the fuel and mechanics. The pilot adjusts his suit, and all he needs now do is slip on his goggles and then take off in his conquest of the skies. As he reaches his peak the smoke trails carve patterns in the sky, reminding the pilot that he alone is in charge of the speed and the trajectory. It is here in this time and space that movement and rigour make their mark in a surge of adrenalin.
