Heightening awareness of design-driven objects.

A subway with style.



designed his concept Metronomie with the intention of shaking up the daily commute, and he’s definitely succeeded. With a modular standard coupling system and variable themes, seating arrangements can be changed and visual stimuli can be customized from car to car, making for a decidedly less hum-drum ride into work. In fact, with its dark interior, sleek lines, dimmer, more morning friendly lighting design and playful color palette, riding the Metronomie is kind of like flying on Virgin. Sure, there’s no drink service but the club-like aesthetic and overall look and mood is strikingly similar. Just imagining the calmative effects of riding this train to work instead of, say, the NYC Metro has me dreaming of a trans-Atlantic move.
