The concept model HF-1 was born of
Hitachi Elevator ‘s basic concept of HUMAN FRIENDLY.
We have invited Mr.Naoto Fukasawa to work on this design.
Overall, the design had roundness,
From the entire spatial design to individual parts,
Creating an environment that doesn’t feel at all oppressive.
The lights in the elevator were conceptualized
From the perspective of “quality of comfort”
To make the atmosphere
Feel like a comforting cocoon
The moment you walk in.
Caring for you, and making you feel comfortable.
Innovation of our transportation system
