Amscreen NGT Kiosk
The first release from the Amscreen Smart City program is this Next Generation Telephone kiosk (NGT) design for Clear Channel. The kiosk features a public phone; wayfinder, wi-fi hotspot
and advertising screen.
Working closely with the engineering team at Amscreen on an existing concept design from Clear Channel, Form Foundry concentrated on the proportions, detailing and design for production.
As part of the design program, the shape of the vacuum formed moulded roof was re-worked to respect the original K6 design and various methods of joining the upper and lower roof elements were examined. The glazing was much simplified from the original concept with the aim keeping the essence of the classic K6 kiosk without the design becoming too cluttered.
Non essential design and decorative features from the original concept were minimised and engineering features such as venting, drainage and panel gaps were designed to create a cohesive overall statement.
Clear Channel aim to install 500 of these next generation kiosks in London.
