Bombardier Wins Good Design Award for Stockholm’s MOVIA Metro C30

Published on : Tuesday, January 31, 2017

MOVIA Metro C30Bombardier Transportation has won the prestigious GOOD DESIGN® Award for the design of its BOMBARDIER MOVIA Metro C30 project for the city of Stockholm, Sweden. The award recognized the metro vehicle’s striking exterior design, a clear expression of Scandinavian style that will become an unmistakable city icon.

 

Michael Sohn, Head of Industrial Design at Bombardier Transportation, said, “We were motivated by the desire to create a unique and recognizable vehicle that would inspire its passengers. Significant effort was spent by both Bombardier and Stockholm Public Transport (SL) to develop an industrial design that radiates simplicity and an honesty of materials and shapes while communicating Stockholm’s unique visual style”.

 

One of the most striking features of the exterior of Stockholm’s new metro trains is its custom LED lighting. This unique light band, or “collar”, for the first time illuminates the frame around the windscreens at both the front and end of the vehicle, which gives the vehicle its distinctive character. Not only does it emphasize its striking aesthetics and Scandinavian design influences, it also clearly distinguishes the C30 as a Bombardier product.
