Cray, Iconic visual design for breakthrough technology

MTA-1 and MTA-2 supercomputer housingCray is a global supercomputer manufacturer. We worked with Cray on the design of the MTA-1 and MTA-2 supercomputer housing. The goal was to provide a visual design that would be iconic and a fundamentally new look for their industry to highlight their breakthrough multi-threaded architecture machine.

Given the scale of these units, one of the key challenges was to design panels that were cost effective to manufacture and allow for easy access into the unit.
