Low cost concept for train seats.

#transport #industrialdesign #cmfdesign #textile



OUIGO is a low cost transportation concept by the french SNCF. In this project, which materials were to be used for elements like the fabrics and the foam were quite important. They needed to be in line with strict requirements of wear and tear resistance among others. The same went for unfolding tables and other elements, resistant materials but limited to a tight budget.

Aside the materials I also worked on the improvement of the seat shape and the base design. Because in this train there are more seats than in the usual SNCF's models. Thus, we had to put a great number of seats in a regular space. At the same time those seats needed to comply with strict ergonomics requirements.
