‘PCS bike’ by taiwanese designers yen-chi yu, cheng-yu tseng and chao-han lee is an electric bike intended for short distances. its compartment space not only provides storage for user’s belongings but also serves to help collapse the bike into a portable unit. the project seeks to promote the reduction of traffic congestion in taiwan as a means to reduce carbon emission levels.
‘PCS bike’ was part of the ‘fun taiwan, new design’ exhibition during DMY international design week berlin 2010. the show featured young taiwanese designers whose work celebrated the culture, festivals and life experiences of their country.
