Holscher Design won a design competition for the creation of the Copenhagen bus shelter. This became the beginning of a continuous cooperation with AFA JCDecaux, which today includes bus shelters, info signs with city maps, billboards and rubbish bins for several cities, as well as the equipment for Aarhus Lightrail.
Holscher Design has developed urban designs the City of Aarhus for borh busses and the Aarhus Lightrail. The goal was a coherent design language, while providing both means of transport with a recognisable and strong identity.
Design elements like the horizontal lines, the metallic grey colour in two shades, the combination of materials and transparency give the urban furniture a common expression.
