Since its launch in November 2016, Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie has come to symbolize the unique relationship between design, technology and culture.

Nestled inside this 110-meter-high, 26-story mega structure, is one of world’s top ten concert halls, mixed use apartments, and even a five-star hotel. KONE has installed the world’s first arched escalators at the Elbphilharmonie. More than 80 meters in length, they are the longest in Europe. Designed in the shape of an arch, they give users the experience of traveling in an ‘endless’ escalator, since they cannot see the other end. They were specially designed for the Elbphilharmonie music hall and climb to a height of 21.43 meters. Several small drive units were used instead of large central drives to make these arched escalators possible. The weekend after the Elbphilharmonie opened, nearly 13,000 people traveled on these escalators each day.

Mixed Development

Mixed use buildings can include retail, offices and residences in one building. Escalators are an ideal solution for the needs of shopping and are the fastest means of transporting passengers from car park levels to the lobby.


With the high traffic volumes in office buildings during morning, lunch and leaving work – escalators provide the quickest route from lift lobbies to the building’s entrance or parking floors without long waiting times.


Escalators & Auto walks are frequently installed in shopping complexes not only for practical purposed but also for architectural and visual reasons. Incorporating innovative lighting technology makes the equipment a part of the interior finish.


Escalators & Autowalks are ubiquitous in airports. Autowalks allow for movement of passengers and trolleys rapidly within terminals and to gates. Escalators transport a large volume of traffic to areas within the airport such as lounges and restaurants amongst other amenities.

Public Transport 

Metros and transport hubs face severe crowding and requires to move large volumes of people during rush hour. High capacity escalators designed especially for this purpose handle large traffic with minimum downtime even allowing for 24 hour use.


As with retail facilities, hotels incorporate escalators as part of the design esthetic. Aside from a visual perspective, they are an ideal solution to move passengers to ballrooms and parking areas.
