‘sofa bike’ by jacek holubowicz

designed by jacek holubowicz and kazimierz lesnniewski, the eccentric ‘sofa bike’ has been conceived for the notion of the ‘bike date’. the design includes two separated 8-gear hubs, hydraulic brakes (all operated by a front handle bar), and dynamic chain steering for manoeuvring through the streets. two extra soft bolsters are included that can be removed according to the driver’s height. the ‘bike couch’ is also equipped with a sound system, 17 AH battery and a folding roof with gas springs.

‘sofa bike’ was presented during DMY berlin 2011.
