With the vast growth of concern about the environment’s current situation, green designs are now visible almost everywhere even on a bus station of your place. Another Red Dot design winner, Yang-Design have created the Sustainable Bus Waiting Booth that uses solar energy to keep its electronic screen that displays the bus schedules going.
A system of bus waiting booth designed for Ningbo South Business District, China by a Shanghai-based design agency Yang-Design.
The system is divided into three units, so that modular can be reduced or increased according to the size of each booth. Due to the sustainable modular design, maintenance is reduced. The two rising benches provide temporary pause for some users and spare enough standing space for many others. Between the benches are a city information center, an advertisement billboard and a bus schedule screen. Solar battery panels are installed on top of the booth to provide energy.
All the components speak the same design language of simplicity. The user-friendly details are designed with soft and fluid curves. Its silver and dark grey color combination also blends in the business district.
The design is winner of 2010 Red Dot Design Award.
