in an effort to create the most efficient, ecological and healthy means of transportation, spanish design
studio lola madrid have conceived ‘bicycled‘ – a project that utilizes recycled cars as the main source for
material. each hand-made bike is based on a consumer insight – which reflects on the emotional attachment
from wrecked vehicles. components such as the frame are made from recycled metal, the chain from
transmission belts and the reflective light made from turn signals.
