The objective of the project was to enhance the perception of the HiSpeed brand of the Dutch Railway by adding a strong signal along the HiSpeed tracks while also offering travellers more comfort as compared to the regular NS furniture. Keywords for the project were comfort and speed. Text from well known travel stories have been added as a subtle decoration layer.

The benches are spread out through the Netherlands from Amsterdam to Rotterdam.
