For the past several years, the renowned Swedish designer Alexander Lervik has been designing the next generation of Aritco lifts. This year, he took on the challenge of designing Aritco’s newest public lift, Aritco PublicLift Access, with a strong emphasis on design than enhances its surroundings.
“The world of elevators hasn’t had design as a key point, especially with platform elevators,” Alexander says. “They have been more about the function and production possibilities. You could say that architects put in an elevator because regulations required it, but they didn’t especially want to put one in. So the goal with our work has been for the architect to want to put the lift in because it’s a nice design that can lift their spaces in a way.”
