Moscow navigation stands (concept)

Overview   Process  

Task: to improve city navigation.

An entirely new way of city navigation was developed at the studio. A transparent information board acts as a navigation stand.

The upper plastic element holds an LED strip light


The housing is made of hollow steel sections coated with powder paint

The frontal panel contains location reference

Navigation stands help pedestrians navigate the surrounding city objects. All they need to do is find a hint on the panel, look at the cylinder at the right angle, and the appropriate object will be easily seen.

Inside the hardened glass panel are cylinders pointed at various objects that can be seen from where the stand is located: landmarks, Metro entrances or public toilets.

In newly developed areas we recommend installing a single pole stand with larger screens: it is easier to manufacture and blends into the modern landscape better.

Twin panels increase information density of each stand
