red dot award: product design 2002
The system of bus shelters and info-pillars meet,
in an exemplary fashion, the demands on design in the public space.
With its light and transparent structure it is considerate of the
existing cityscape and is therefore able to function in all urban
contexts, at the same time as clean lines and the distinct, recognisable
form express a strong identity. The design is detailed and overall,
for example in the inlaid rubber on the seat area of the steel bench.
Accessibility for the user is reflected both in the physical separation
of shelter and info-stand, which leaves no doubt as to where the information
about buses is located.
