Coach Vacanza, Solaris Bus & Coach S.A.

IFS Design undertook the exterior and interior design work for Solaris’ Vacanza touring bus. The design remit concentrated on innovative and conceptual solutions. Characteristic for the exterior design are the wedge-shaped body, the trapezium-shaped windows, the asymmetric front screen and the “Targa roof” at the transition between glass and roof.
This new touring bus celebrated its world premiere in 2001 in model form at the “Busworld” exhibition in Belgium, and went into series production a year later. In the voting for “Bus of the Year 2004”, the Vacanza took second place.
