ELeather Partners with The Deutsche Bahn Idea Train

ELeather have been announced as an official partner of the Deutsche Bahn Idea Train launched in Nuremburg, Germany on 7th November, 2017.

ELeather partnered with DB and design agency Neomind, to develop innovative seating designs in a number of the trains showcase modules, which you can see below.

The ELeather material has been a big success with the DB Idea Train team, resulting in wide adoption in multiple cabins and seating designs.

The Deutsche Bahn Idea Train

The “Ideenzug” or “Idea Train” is an innovative project that showcases what rail interiors of the future could look like. The project is the brainchild of Christoph Kraller, head of DB regional train subsidiary ‘Südostbayernbahn’ and contains a variety of different modules that cater for the evolving needs of its passengers.

DB have conceptualised a number of cabins and features on the Idea Train including privacy pods, noise-cancelling chairs for business travellers, a children’s play area for families and a fitness studio complete with exercise bikes and digital fitness coaches.

Alexandra Bennett, Business Manager Ground Transport, said:

“We are extremely proud to be part of the DB Idea Train and support the development of this innovative project. We invested heavily in a rigorous colour matching and sampling process to present new design concepts based on DB’s initial illustrations. This has resulted in DB taking those designs forward and realising them in multiple areas within the concept train.”
