Kayserius traffic light

Overview   Process  

Task: to design traffic lights to compliment the Kayseri cityscape.

Sitting in the heart of Turkey, Kayseri is a prominent city with a rich history. Since the early 2000s, Kayseri has enjoyed economic growth which has sparked renovation. The city’s transportation infrastructure is one of the many improvements taking place. Commissioned by the municipality, the studio developed a modular traffic light design.


Scaled-down and compact, the internal components allow the Kayserius body to look slim and fresh, fitting perfectly a progressive and modern atmosphere.

Thanks to its thin body, Kayserius has a contemporary, hi-tech feel.

Kayserius streamlined form does not steal attention from the critical part: the traffic signals. The bottom display features text backing up the main color signals.

Over-the-road model

The signal panels and displays are made of LED clusters. The back of the traffic light features an extra display, which, due to high contrast, improved the displays visibility against a busy cityscape.

At daylight and during nighttime

Kayserius has efficient production cost and is low-maintenance. The body is one solid cast piece, which lowers the production cost, simplifies the mounting construction, and makes the installation and maintenance easier.
