KONE Elevator Car

Elevator Cabin

Manufacturer

KONE Corporation, Finland

In-house design

Elina Laitinen, Timo Manner, Finland

Honourable Mention
The novel aluminium honeycomb structure of the KONE Elevator Car dampens vibrations for a smoother and more comfortable ride in the elevator. The lightweight, horizontal panel construction of the walls makes the car seem more spacious, for horizontal lines suggest spatial depth. The high-precision, flush-mount panel connection system simplifies on-site assembly.

Statement by the jury

»The slim and plain design of the KONE Elevator Car was persuasive to the jury. It not only facilitates assembly but also gives the passenger an enhanced sense of space.«
