Wittur presented today a new publication focused on special elevator projects developed by Wittur with architets and consultants wordlwide.
The book "LIFTISMORE" aims at introducing some architectural project where the elevator design was considered not only for its usefulness, but also as an element of style: an additional space where the pen of the designer can incorporate the overall building concept.
Some elements of the building design, such as the elevator systems, must first and foremost provide a safe and reliable transportation solution for the people living and working there. This is why many building designs, although impressive, sometimes fail to innovate as far as elevator systems are concerned: they treat elevators as a commodity which needs to be provided, and not an element of design in itself.
Wittur has been developing special elevator solutions for more than 40 years. We do not install nor service elevators; we work as partners in special projects, together with the design team and the elevator installer, to provide elevator components which fits with the original vision of the architect.
The technological development of the elevator component industry has taken away most structural limitations with which architects of the past had to deal. The elevator system of the 21st century can thus become one of the landmarks of a peculiar building design and contribute to the embodiment of the original vision. In this book you will have a chance for inspiration, coming from a selection of project in which Wittur has helped developing an original concept encompassing the elevator system and making it part of the building structure. We look forward to work with you as a partner to push the boundary of elevator design one step forward.
