marco ferreri: moto tessuto

‘moto tessuto’ by milan-based designer marco ferreri is an electric scooter with a fabric bodywork which features a number of pockets and storage spaces. showing at the milan triennale in ferreri’s mixed media exhibition, the design concept provides generous compartmentalizing options at the front and the back, with smaller pockets behind the handlebars and the sides of the seat. the batteries are inserted into the fabric skin, which can be transformed and adapted like a dress to fit the different needs of the user.

  • Really fashion. A mobile product rather than a mobile machine. Good concept!
