Xian Metro retail, Line 2 – concept design
Xian, China   [西安二号线地铁零售店概念设计 | 中国,西安]

...if China is a tree, Beijing is the crown and Xian the roots!

It is said '...if China is a tree, Beijing is the crown and Xian the roots'. Xian has a history going back more than 4000 years and the location was a key point for the old silk road. By introduction of Xian’s Line 2 as being the first metro coming to town now, we were invited to give conceptual proposal for the underground retail. The metaphors, history and the rich Xian culture came to the concept of 'old silk road meets new' for this 17 station long line with smaller and larger retail on each stop.

Simple, versatile elements with clear references to transport and 'roots' can not only create a beautiful new underground trading representing the new silk road, but can also be branded as

well as the famous London Underground, making it an attraction in itself.

Platform and leisure furniture, again with clear references to the concept is clear in below public furniture. Further to this it has been considered that no bags can be placed under the seating so commuter either forget them or believe it’s hidden bags in these 'fear of terror' days.

         有这么一句话说:如果中国是一棵树,北京是树冠,西安就是那树根。西安是举世闻名的世界古都,悠久历史可以追溯到4000多年前,是丝绸之路的起点。西安地铁二号线是第一条通向城镇的地铁线,Claus受邀为地下零售店作概念设计方案。悠久的历史、灿烂的文化、新旧丝绸之路交汇成为17个站点上各零售店的设计理念,通过简单而又多样化的元素勾勒出其交通功能,同时将地下零售店打造成能代表新丝绸之路的华丽、崭新、魅力无限的地下商场,像伦敦地下铁那样自身成为一个景点。

         站台及休闲区的家具设计很好地诠释了设计理念,此外,座位的设计独特,避免了乘客忘记拿走包裹或认为是恐怖袭击包裹。
