Ippiart Studio designed the new modular interior system, that could be used for the most typical carriage models, that now operated by Russian Railways (for new or for refurbishing). Preserving the conventional layout of carriages allows reducing costs. The new vision of design, ergonomics and answering for the passengers’ most popular requirements, allows achieving a fundamentally different level of comfort, the most focused on the convenience of travelling.

Passenger seats and sleeping berths are equipped with individual lighting, 220 V and USB sockets. Passengers, who use top sleeping berths, have an extra table with cup holders, special places for storing personal belongings near windows and spacious hand luggage racks.
Through the new partitions with built-in stairs and individual curtains, passengers can feel almost as comfortable as in the separate compartment. At any time, the curtains can be closed, giving the necessary privacy.
