Moscow navigation panels (concept)

Overview   Process  

Task: to improve city navigation.

A breakthrough in city navigation was recently developed in our studio. The new concept provides interaction on a completely new, intimate level allowing you to experience the city in a fresh and enjoyable way. The see-through information panel functions as a city navigation object as well.

The frame is made of powder-coated steel profile

The front panel has a location “anchor” telling you exactly what you are looking at

These navigation panels help you grasp your surroundings: simply find a text block related to a city object you seek, than look through the corresponding cylinder at the proper angle to locate that place.

For newer city districts we’ve prepared a different design: one-legged and with a bigger panel which is easier to produce and fits the modern environment better.
