Our designers now have an idea of how the Helix train might look. The design is inspired by our Helix mind map – an images we have had with us from the start of the project, with bits an pieces that we felt might work well in the project. This is how the mind map currently looks:
Some of the parts in the mind map we haven’t yet used and some have been used over and over again. The train has gotten it’s shape from spines as principal – whether its human, snake or even the stem of a leaf and down to its veins. We have had a biomimetic reference with us throughout the project.
We are rather happy with it…
