Apologies for the lack of posts. I’ve just finished University! Officially (scary) and have had all the celebrations and serious thoughts of becoming a ‘real’ adult! Now that graduation is over, I am currently trying to strike a balance between time in the sun, packing up my house and finishing job applications. I WILL give an update on New Designers that happened earlier this month, but, for the time being, here is a fantastic 21 piece bike that fits in a bag that twist and lock together!
Not quite like Mary Poppin’s bottomless bag, but the Kit Bike comes close enough. This project has won a Red Dot 2014 Award! Lucid Designs, an Indian company, have created the concept knowing all too well that a bike is only ever NOT awkward when you ride it. So why not make a bike that is easily dissembled and fits into a snazzy leather back pack? Follow this link to the video.
The design is not yet in production, but Lucid Design is considering it in the future. Materials include cork handlebars, a leather seat and hollow aluminium tubes.
Stunning. Sustainable. Simple. I like it.
