‘ufold’ by andré costa
‘ufold’ by andré costa from portugal is one of the shortlisted design entries from more than
3000 participants in our recent designboom competition, ‘seoul cycle design 2010′,
organized in collaboration with seoul design foundation.
designer’s own words:
the ‘ufold’ is a fun city bike, a cross between mountain bike size and city bike use. it has a simple design
with an easy-to-use folding system. the central joint in the two-piece frame is what makes it easy to use.
the safety trigger and angle two piece frame allows the wheels to be aligned when open and side by side
when closed, all in one folding movement. made to have fun traveling in the city, but also to be easy to store,
the handles in the frame makes it easy to push, while closed.
