‘sideways bike’ by michael killian
‘sideways bike’ by michael killian from ireland 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:
‘the sideways bike is a two wheel steering bicycle with independently steerable wheels
that travels sideways. this steering arrangement affords a unique and distinct motion that is
both entertaining and graceful; much like the motion of a snowboard. the sideways bike is
an instrument of fun and play and is best suited for children from age 7 and up.
the sideways bike is recognizably a bicycle, but it is recognizably different.‘
