Island is a double-decker driverless tram designed for Hong Kong in the post-Covid era. The name Island refers to the innovative design of the interiors, with large circular benches where passengers sit facing outwards. The exterior design is inspired by Hong Kong buildings with curved curtain walls. Island’s curved windows and domed top draw in light by day and awe-inspiring views by night. The interiors are sleek and comfortable: charcoal gray walls, cushioned seats, wooden floors and trims with natural finish. Island connects several elements of design and urban life: transportation, landscape and sightseeing, safety and comfort. It represents the forward-thinking spirit of Hong Kong, and redefines public transport for the post-Covid era.

Island won the 2020 GIDA Design Award.
