Bus Driver Utility Box

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.“
