Modul’Air, a finalist for the prestigious International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), offers a radical rethink of the urban mobility experience.

A central goal of the new public transportation system redesign was to harmonize human activity and nature in the French city of Grenoble.

The result is an innovative system of pods, transporting passengers and freight, which seamlessly connect, scale up and down according to volume patterns, and integrate with ground transportation modes.

The resulting passenger experience is extraordinarily painless and transparent—an obvious solution in hindsight. By design, Modul’Air lowers the barriers to utilizing public transportation and frees up ground space for a healthier environment and higher quality of life.

Eiffage’s Foresight Lab, Phosphore, and Dassault Systèmes Design Studio collaborated on the development of the Modul’Air experience.

In the process, Eiffage forged strategic partnerships with new business partners, in particular cable infrastructure builder POMA. Modul’Air project contributors leveraged the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, which is now available on a cloud environment.

The Dassault Systèmes Design Studio provides holistic design innovation and implementation services for any industry. Design Studio partners become actors of innovation, bringing human understanding to the design process through advanced visualization, social collaboration, and decision-making applications.
