  • Which materials should we use in the future elevator car when the number of people in the world is growing and we’re facing an increasing lack of natural resources? How is the usage of different materials going to change and how will buildings look in the future? How are people living in them? In my thesis I investigated sustainable materials for future elevator cars. The focus of the research was on bio- and waste-based materials that are currently utilised in many products. I chose a few favourite materials and designed wall panelling to create ambience for the elevator car of the next decade. The thesis was done for KONE.
