DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
FIAKER 2.0

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Advanced Carriage

INSPIRATION:
For a lot of cities traditional coach tours still offer a big business regarding tourists or special events like marriages or birthdays. But these tours come with a big problem in the form of horse refuse. Besides some questionable solutions it comes down for a lot of cities to find alternative and expensive ways to catch the manure. Or they just stop the tours. Fiaker 2.0 addresses two main issues to update and upgrade the image of coach tours: actually catching the manure through an innovative but simple system while maintain the traditional and authentic experience.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Project Fiaker 2.0 addresses two central topics: The first essential requirement is to solve street pollution produced by coach tours in cities in the form of horse refuse. Further on a specific design for a horse-drawn carriage is developed, following the classical cabs in their formal aesthetics despite having its own modern and up-to-date form. The challenge is to present a contemporary and ecological concept, still transmitting the typical feeling of a coach tour. The main goal is to make coach tours more attractive to clients through using a new concept and innovative design.

PROFILE:
In November 2012 I duly completed the Master’s Programme Scionic Industrial Design at the University of Art and Design Linz in Austria. As an Industrial/Product Designer I can link personal creativity with modern technical innovations. It offers challenges in many different ways: technology, ergonomics, surfacing, function, safety, sustainability. Furthermore developing new ideas in a committed and motivated team is for me one of the most interesting tasks in the profession of an Industrial Designer.
