giovanni bellini: evanél electric scooter

with their electric scooter design ‘evanél’, giovanni bellini and allan sejer madsen’s aim was to make a vehicle that would differentiate itself from normal gas scooters. ‘evanél’s’ form is derived from the idea of creating a scooter that consists only of surfaces, making it just as lightweight as the electric current that powers it.

the result is a single surface shape, a ‘rolling sculpture’ in which each of the bike’s curved surfaces perform a specific function such as a seat or protective windshield covering.

  • Nice concept, but is it truely usable?
    Nice to see the concepts like this but its sad to see almost of them stay as a concept. So please try to realize them with a little changes.
