christophe machet: camioncyclette transportation bike
spotted at the interieur biennale in kortrijk, belgium, as part of the ‘youngdesignersfair’ – a show of young talents of today and tomorrow – the ‘camioncyclette’ transportation bicycle by swiss designer christophe machet carries loads up to 150kg. conceived as a rectangular basket on wheels, the entirety of the bike frame can be used to bear cargo – more than 120L worth of it. the front hamper doesn’t move with the wheel, making the ride more stable, as well as safer. located near the crank there is space for two batteries in the case that the user requires electric assistance.
