‘baubike’ by michael ubbesen jakobsen

danish designer michael ubbesen jakobsen presented ‘baubike’ at the DMY berlin design festival 09. the baubike is constructed around the geometric shape of the square and the equilateral triangle. the design is stripped down to clean lines and raw material. the open-end piece above the back wheel, offers the possibility to customize the function of the bike by allowing you to add an extra-seat and carrier.
