Bus Driver Utility Box

LONDON BUSES | Transport for London

USER RESEARCH | INDUSTRIAL DESIGN | SHEET METAL ENGINEERING  | GRAPHICS

With over 11 million passengers every day, Transport for London runs one of the busiest and most complex transportation systems in the world

We were asked to design a  utility box for bus drivers which would allow access to clean water and electricity, whilst providing storage for tools.  We designed a highly durable product, which could withstand the rigours of daily life on

London's streets, providing a trustworthy and reliable facility for bus drivers.

 
The result is a timeless design aesthetic that merges seamlessly into the London cityscape.   Self finishing materials such as concrete, stainless steel, and timber were used, along with polyester powder-coated steel to help to increase the product’s lifespan.

Transport for London has the oldest section of underground railway in the world and boasts a rich design heritage. Critical to the new design is a product that honors and builds upon TFL’s brand language

“TfL’s design language combines an expression of precise engineering skills with softened organic forms. A well designed, confident and consistent visual identity is highly effective in communicating the strengths of our organisation.“

Group Marketing Director, TfL

“Max provides creative and innovative design ideas and solutions within the confines of a public authority. “
