DESIGN NAME:
Deutsche Bahn Add-ons

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Train Improvement Concept

INSPIRATION:
On behalf of the Magazine Wirtschaftswoche, three international Design-Teams were asked to create new logistics concepts, attractive interiors and contemporary facilities for the railway of the future. The OFFICE GERHARDT KELLERMANN focused on the current problems and near future of the trains. How can we improve the fast changing tasks with new thinking and concepts? Its not about another train of the future which has to run for the next 50 years, society nowadays changes fast!

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With Add-ons the munich based Studio RELVAOKELLERMANN presents an economic approach for the upgrade and modernization of existing trains. The concepts of Add-ons consists of individual elements. They are build onto trains or their interior. Due to a long life period of existing trains, they offer targeted solutions without large or new developments. The Add-Ons can act quickly and simple to the rapid development in passenger transport and their problems and requirements. We limited our work to three examples for three observations. From small ones like a head-rest to a capacitive recharger for electronics to a complete waggon. The obeservations are divided into three themes: Resting and Sleeping, Working and Entertainment and Rail travel as an experiance.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The first Add-on is an adjustable neck rest, made out of a flexible rubber (RIM Molding). It's easy to clean and can be adjusted freely. The second Add-on is a induction recharging pad inserted in the backrest table. The third Add-on is an fresh air and panorame compartment. Ventilation slots on the bottom if the side walls provide air circulation (airflow is adjusted the the speed of the train). Large windows counteract the constricting tunnel effect of the seating compartments. Mirrored doors increase the spatial effect of a compartment.
