ÖBB AUSTRIAN FEDERAL RAILWAYS
PriestmanGoode has been working in close collaboration with Austrian Federal Railways ÖBB on interior designs for its Intercity day train, as well as its Nightjet overnight services, in which the rail operator has invested heavily to create Europe’s most comprehensive network of night trains.
Our work extends to all aspects of the train interiors. For the Day train, we have designed new Eco and First Class carriages, including entrance areas with integrated seating and digital info panels, luggage areas, Eco Class seats, First Class seats with personal digital displays, family/business berths as well as a restaurant carriage with multi use areas for bike and ski storage.
For the Nightjet services, our work includes new family rooms for up to four people, First Class apartments for two people with a personal bathroom, sleeper pods and new hallways and entrance areas.
Open and bright entrance areas create a welcoming atmosphere upon boarding.
First Class seats are upholstered with textured fabric to create a more comfortable and luxurious passenger environment.
First Class tables can be pulled out to provide additional space for working.
Individual seats are also equipped with tables for eating or working, whilst narrow pull down tables with USB charging points provide can be used to rest tablets and personal devices.
Ample under seat storage in between seats in Standard Class.
Dedicated tablet/personal device stand with USB charging points.
Private berths are fitted in both First and Standard Class carriages and can be booked for business passengers or families travelling together.
The two bed sleeping compartment includes a small toilet/washrooom.
It’s about a particular quality of travelling…
Comfortably, safely, without traffic congestion; depart in the evening, arrived relaxed in the morning.
