NEXIEZ-S / Elevator


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

This compact, low-speed elevator was designed for use in low-rise residences. It reduces power consumption by using gearless hoisting equipment. Lighting is reflected continuously off the front and side walls and doors, producing an effect that makes the walls seem deeper back and farther apart than they are. This solves the problem of claustrophobia in conventional compact elevators. The car and operating panel have restrained horizontal and vertical lines in a flat, low-noise style that harmonizes with various architectural styles.
