Hyundai Elevator has won the "Finalist" at the 2018 International Design Excellence Awards hosted by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), becoming the first global elevator company to win such an award.
Along with the Red Dot Design Awards and the iF Design Awards, IDEA is one of the top three design awards in the world, the company said.
The "Universal Multi Bar" submitted by Hyundai Elevator is equipped with the foot button at the height of the adult knee and the "touchless foot button" on the sensor detection area, along with the existing call button.
This design allows all passengers, such as users with objects, short children and wheelchair users, to call elevators without restriction. Hall Lantern, which shows the direction of lift up and down, has enhanced visibility by designing it in 3D dimensions.
By winning this award, Hyundai Elevator, which won the industry's first iF design gold award in 2017, received another recognition for its design competitiveness. Hyundai Elevator is the only company in the world that has won the two design awards.
