Scandalously blue
A blue historic streetcar, called "Kurbeli" because of the tiny handcrank for the driver.


In the 1940's, the streetcars of Zurich were painted in the traditional colours of the city, blue and white. The new completely blue trams, later nicknamed "Kurbeli" because of the tiny handcrank for the driver, became a matter of argument. Soon, the upper part was painted white to silence complaints. One of those streetcars found a home at the Tram-Museum Zurich, painted all blue again. It's roadworthy and can be seen on the Museum Line 21.

What is the story behind your design?

It's one of my favourite historic streetcars.

Is there a connection between your design and the Victorinox brand?

Yes, traditional Swiss craftmanship and engineering.

Please make sure you have filled out your country of origin in your profile! It’s important that the regional Victorinox team understands the cultural background of your design.
