Train interiors are complex environments that need to meet a broad set of design criteria. Vehicles are judged as both public and personal spaces, with the most successful interiors blending commercial, technical and safety requirements into one attractive and long lasting product.
Design Triangle have a long history in creating innovative, attractive interior designs for major transport operators and manufacturers. Some designs like Heathrow Express have become classics, running for years in their original form. While other projects like our Lola Cars Le Mans V12 structural dashboard, although groundbreaking and exciting, don't make it through to production. Whichever way, our mission is to always produce best in class design solutions for our clients.
