Seeking to enhance the transit experience and improve the quality of existing architecture and functionality, the City of Miami Beach proposed to
adopt a new bus shelter design for city commuters, with the City Commission unanimously selecting Pininfarina’s boundary-pushing concept design as the winning bid.

A year later, Pininfarina receives the prestigious Red Dot Award for Design Concept with their design.

Drawing inspiration from the City of Miami Beach’s playful, dynamic, and energetic atmosphere, Pininfarina crafted a color palette and nature inspired shapes that capture the vibrant personality of Miami Beach. The bus shelters feature innovative modular designs and contemporary technology that highlight Pininfarina’s goal of creating a modern, airy, accessible and comfortable user experience, where beauty is never sacrificed for functionality.

“Our bus shelters will display the highest design quality and functionality,” expressed Dan Gelber, Miami Beach Mayor. “This prestigious award represents the ultimate seal of approval when it comes to an exquisite design, enhancing our Miami Beach brand worldwide.”

“We are delighted to receive this award for the City of Miami Beach,” said Paolo Trevisan, Head of Design for Pininfarina of America. “Our bus shelter system is the solution to the City of Miami Beach’s transportation needs, and we’re honored to be part of the evolution of the city’s identity.”

To honor the chosen design projects, The Red Dot Design Awards Ceremony will be held on September 25, 2019 in Singapore.
