Otis Elevator Company Unveils New Elevator Design and Functionality
Mar 24 15
Otis Elevator Company has unveiled new elevator design and functionality. With the new elevator design concepts unveiled by Otis during MIPIM, the international real estate show for professionals, elevator interior design and connectivity become the focus of the elevator experience. The elevators provide continuity with the architecture and design of a building, a shared space transporting passengers and providing an experience that contributes to building occupants' quality of life. Otis worked with designers to create two ambiances, "natural" and "modern," which feature four designs each. Among the notable features, the cab interior is lit with indirect LED lighting, integrated in the cab's four corners to provide an impression of space and depth and to highlight each material's texture. Inspired by early 20th-century architecture, the natural ambiance creates a harmonious connection between the elevator, hallway and lobby. Priority was given to the use of natural materials such as wood, stone and leather, combined with minimalist forms. The rounded lit corners of the cab add comfort in a space with limited dimensions. In keeping with modern architecture, the modern designs feature materials that convey a high-tech feel and shapes that highlight the combination of metal texture and bright glossy color. This range features contrasts between the dark decorative elements and the vertical illumination. The design is sleek and efficient. The new designs also feature integration of multimedia and interactive services such as: a full HD screen positioned in the control panel that provides relevant information to passengers, such as news, weather and traffic; and a smartphone app which allows passengers to remotely call the elevator while walking in the building.
