Lifts and Architecture

The lifts blends symbiotically with the surrounding space
and is no longer a cold and industrial element,
as it captures the environment unique mood.
It reveals its soul by following a process of innovation,
constantly shifting between aesthetics and functionality.

Bold designs with compelling colour combinationsare conceived to encapsulate
the subtle boundary between art, craftsmanship and design.
Lines are shaped by their own distinctive aesthetics that builds the identity
of environments and spaces with unmistakable features.

From context to material and to material to form.
