The Dassault Falcon 900B, a triple-engine transoceanic jet, was Marc’s first aviation project and commissioned by a private client.

Marc was given carte blanche for the design of the interior and livery. The interiors featured a black, silver and acid green colour scheme with lacquered elements including tables, side panels and wall dividers.  Individual elements designed by Marc included seating (some that could also be converted into a bed), sofas, tray tables, carpets, and a range of fixtures, fittings and lighting.

For the exterior, starting with a bare fuselage, Marc asked his the friend and longtime collaborator, Australian artist and graphic designer Richard Allan to design the livery which he covered in a pattern of circles of increasing density, a version of a blown up dot screen fade, that communicates an aeronautical aesthetic of moving from front to back.
