The Transport Council of Canton Zurich and the Zurich City Council decided to give the go-ahead for buying new „Flexity 2“ tram lines for Zurich. The Bombardier „Flexity Zurich“ will substitute the today’s „Tram 2000“.
Jointly with the producer Bombardier, milani developed the interior and exterior design of the 70 new low-floor tram lines.
In the course of this recreation, the traditional tram line was transformed into a new and contemporary one for Zurich. Central idea was the visualization of a traveling pavilion. The basic form of the tram line assimilates front and rear, with the help of a continuous window-line. The Zurich „VBZ“ logo was used as a model for shaping the front and rear lightnings. A rounded band on the tram line, creates a high identification with the brand „VBZ“. The front and rear lightnings are framed. The result is a confident, modern look.
