The task was to design an electrical car based on Etrans knowledge of Danish drivers and their assumptions about electrical cars, as well as the task of combining Peugeot design-philosophy into a design that is appealing to both men and women.
The goal was to design a modern electric car with a link to the design history from Peugeot and mix it with new elements as well.
The main inspiration was the Peugeot 202 and shapes and elements from lion cubs that all so named the car Lionceau (young lion)
The brief was to design a cool bicycle for a strong female musician.
The design is inspired by the soft flow and rhythm of music trying to minimize the angular shapes the traditionally characterize bike design.
I designed and build this bike in Shanghai in collaboration with the Tongji University and one of the world’s largest bicycle manufactures Forever Bicycles China.
I build the bike by hand in one week at a dark and dirty workshop at the gigantic Forever bicycle factory outside of Shanghai. The workers at the factory were all very sweet and very helpful especially if you offered them cigarettes and chocolate.
Overall a great and educational experience.
