Technologie Design by Porsche Design Studio

Milestone in design in the ropeway industry

With a clear goal in mind, Bartholet has developed unique vehicles in cooperation with Studio F.A. Porsche. The focus was on creating a special aesthetic value for the ropeway operator.

In 2011 Bartholet set an example on the ropeway market with the new comfortable 6-seater chair in the "Design by Porsche Design Studio". The chair is characterised by a unique shape combined with state-of-the-art technology and the highest level of driving comfort. For a special panorama experience, the chair is also available in a 45-degree rotation version. The chair was first used in LAAX (CH).

A next courageous step

Two years later, Bartholet also presented the matching premium version in the area of cabin vehicles with the elegant gondola in the "Design by Porsche Design Studio". The elegant curved shape makes the gondola an impressive eye-catcher. The gondolas are individually equipped according to customer requirements. Highest Swiss quality in combination with an incomparable ride comfort guarantee not only a pleasure for the eye, but also an all-round experience for the whole ride.


Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See has been designing products and turning brands into an experience since 1972. Founded by Prof. Ferdinand Alexander Forsche, grandson of the Porsche founder, the designers strive for the perfect and extraordinary form.
