TMH metro train “Moskva-2020” received the Red Dot Award: Best of the Best for the best design in its category
TMH metro train “Moskva-2020” won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international team of jurors awarded the “Moskva-2020” subway train the highest score in the “Trains and Aircraft” category – the Red Dot: Best of the Best.
“Moskva-2020” is a new generation metro train of the 81-775/776/777 series manufactured by Metrowagonmash (MWM) plant of Transmashholding JSC headed by Andrey Bokarev. The most advanced engineering and construction solutions were used in the creation of the new rolling stock. The sophisticated exterior design and technological interior were developed in cooperation with one of the best Italian design studios Italdesign. Every element of the train demonstrates the high quality of the rolling stock, safety and comfort of the passengers.
Digital services (interactive metro maps, USB sockets in every seat, touch screens and additional monitors, the possibility to choose a less busy car using a special App) allow to form a new format of urban space for inspiration, work and relaxation.
The new rolling stock has been designed with the use of the most advanced engineering and construction solutions. The width of the passage between the cars has been increased by 57% compared to the previous series of trains. The doorways have also been widened from 1.4 to 1.6 meters. The surface area of the door windows is now 82%. Protective glass screens separate the entrance area from the seating area. TMH also designed a new configuration of grab bars with a “hot” coating along the entire length. The passenger seats have been redesigned and for the first time the lighting system has also been installed under the benches – an original and purely aesthetic solution. The eight-car train has no less than 368 USB sockets, which are installed in the seats. The size of the information boards and touch screens has also been increased. The driver’s cabin and the passenger cars are equipped with modern air disinfection systems.
Commenting on the results of the competition, TMH’s chief designer Evgeny Maslov remarked: “This is a great victory of a great international team of TMH – designers, engineers, employees of our production sites who not only invented a fantastically aesthetic train, but also realized it. Today it runs in one of the most beautiful metro systems in the world – the Moscow Metro”.
The founder and CEO of Red Dot, Professor Peter Zec said: “The winners of the Red Dot: Best of the Best competition have demonstrated unique design skills. Their creations set trends in the world of product design. Only a small fraction of our nominees achieve this perfect symbiosis of aesthetics and functionality. It is important to recognize this remarkable achievement. My sincere congratulations to all those who have won the award.”
Within the framework of the important event in the Russian business world “Transport Week 2020”, the “Moskva-2020” metro train has already won the national award “The Formula of Motion” in the category “Best innovative solution in the field of transport equipment”.
