‘ivy’ by sono mocci
‘ivy’ by sono mocci from italy is one of the shortlisted design entries from more than
3000 participants in our recent designboom competition, ‘seoul cycle design competition 2010‘,
organized in collaboration with seoul design foundation.
designer’s own words:
‘why does our bicycle need to be connected to light poles by chains like a criminal in prison?
inspired by nature, the design of this cable wire lock is a mimicry of ivy. it is unified in our daily
scene and promotes protection of the environment. it is soft and feels natural. ‘ivy’ is a plug
to awaken the relationship between you and society. 4 dial number lock, steel wire + silicon gom
covered. 2 sizes: short (900mm), long (1500mm)’
