Upon reflecting on its activity, Sncf INTERCITÉS has recently organised an unprecedented hackathon on board one of its night trains on the weekend of April 21st, 2017 gathering students, designers, startuppers, inventors, commuters and SNCF experts all seeking to reinvent night train experience.
In order to reinvent the night train, INTERCITÉS has become Camondo’s partner and has offered 6 of our students to hop on board and apprehend practical constraints and creativity within an academic collaboration which theme was the renewal of night trains.
The 6 to-be interior architects-object designers have been invited to take part in several workshops and bear a fresh look along with their skills and know-how on board a night train from Paris to Biarritz.
Several topics have been tackled in order to re-think the experience of a train ride more in accordance with the needs and expectations of night commuters: space design, on board services, digital processes, destinations, marketing tools, etc. Their productions will help INTERCITÉS to select several relevant and unique projects, which will provide their future night train journeys a new and modern appeal.
