I have not outgrown my childhood love of cycling. Instead my fascination continues to grow. I often feel that the discipline of vehicle design has grown into an unbalanced manner – too preoccupied with peacocking and demonstrations of personal superiority. In general the contrasting qualities of simplicity, efficiency plus the health benefits of cycling enjoy a timeless relevance. There is room for everyone on the road. We understand ourselves better if we can understand each other. My work at the RCA has frequently explored this cross-pollination.
Hybrid Cargo Trike
Having observed the emergence of a new philosophy of bicycle ownership – where it is used and insured like a car – I felt motivated to push this concept into a powerful, antagonistic, new design statement. My hybrid cargo bycicle confronts the social preconceptions facing cyclists. Prodigious and familial, it reflects on the directions of automotive as well as bicycle design.
