Die ideale Seilbahn / funicular

Development of a new cabin design for use in alpine funicular railways. The new concept focuses on a semi-circular seating arrangement, giving the cabin a new appearance. The use of state-of-the-art technologies and materials (e.g.: dual cable suspension) promotes a strong sense of security. Inside, the emphasis is on comfort and easily accessible storage space for the passengers\' equipment. Production is based on a modular system: A single extruded aluminium shell – bent and joined – forms the substructure of the cabin\'s frame. Both economical and rapid production are thus realised while permitting customisation of both dimensions and shape
