BigD, the Spanish industrial design studio who conceived the cabin, decided to submit the project to the prestigious iF Awards one of the world’s most important awards for industrial products design. Linden Comansa’s commitment to improve the working conditions of the crane operator was the winner in the section on vehicles and automotive, which fitted best to tower cranes. The award was presented in Munich, Germany in 2017.
According to Alberto Munárriz, Linden Comansa’s General Manager, the iF award recognizes the great work of BigD, which understood clearly the needs of the crane operator, to offer a pleasant work space with the greatest possible comfort. The CUBE cab has an innovative aesthetic design, very different from what the market offers, so far, and includes all the technical requirements needed in a cabin as a fundamental part of the crane.
Said Adrián Larripa, CEO, BigD, "The CUBE cab is a small portion of the product tower crane, but it is its nerve centre in the handling and control of the loads. Thanks to a comprehensive analysis of the experience of use of the crane operator, we created a completely user-centric cab design, providing huge comfort and increasing the cab’s capacity to implement new crane functions that could arise for future needs. This project also led us to engage with suppliers to achieve these improvements with a reasonable impact on the cost of the cab."
