Designed at MM Design Italy, the TR8 Snow Gun from TechnoAlpin revolutionised the world of snow production. Alain was involved in the conceptual phase of the TR8 to create an attractive streamlined body which complimented the technological innovations within.

The TR8 Snow Gun design is all about integration. By having the motor housed within the turbine this not only made the TR8 significantly more efficient but provided more freedom for the design of the overall shape. Special attention was given to usability and integration of features into the form. Alain's primary role within this project was to explore the possibilities of aesthetics while paying close attention to the technical inner-workings of the TR8.
