Yes, you read that right. I assert we will need to miniaturize our products’ burden on buildings while having bigger experiences and faster delivery times which requires stronger materials. 

Remember Ironman’s super-cool digital screens inside his ocean-side lair? Well today, thyssenkrupp announced that our service technicians will use HoloLens technology in its elevator service operations worldwide.

There is no getting around it. If your building is two stories or hundreds of feet, you are going to need an elevator. You have to meet the American Disabilities Act codes but what you don’t need is a complicated elevator system to travel just a few feet.

The term “smart city” can be open to interpretation. Here are a few prerequisites established a few years ago.  A smart city uses technologies to be more intelligent and efficient when using resources.

thyssenkrupp is currently putting the finishing touches on the installation of 30 elevators and 2 escalators that will serve 52 floors at River Point, a new office tower located on a prime piece of property overlooking the Chicago River.


ThyssenKrupp Elevator has taken significant steps to eliminate chemicals of concern from our products.

In fact we lead our industry by being the first to obtain Material Health Certificates from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. Now, our products will be listed in a newly launched Material Health Certificate Registry.  The registry is an online tool that will allow the architecture and design community to identify manufacturers who chemically optimize their products.

We were so excited to take a sneak peek inside ThyssenKrupp Elevator’s cabs at One World Trade Center this week. .


As the opening day of the observatory nears, One World Trade Center released video footage ( this one is from the New York Times) of the 515-year visual timeline of New York City’s skyline that visitors will see on their way up to the 102nd floor. The idea is to watch history unfold as you ride to the top.
