air store motion by Chen-yu from taiwan
designer's own words:
Inspiration of Design
With the advancement of technology and bike, more and more people are challenging themselves to cross-country biking. One of the major issues they come across on their journey is that the tires get deflated and bikers must bring a portable inflater. To lower the inconvenience of bringing a large portable inflators which trouble us a lot, the A.S.M (Air Store Motion) is created!
Concept of Design
We believe "Motion" represents the interaction between time and object. As time flows like fluids do, we wish to design our product with an intention of "filling" itself when being in motion.
．A.S.M. - HOW IT WORKS
ASM works through the repeated operation of shock-proof
spring and cumulative air pressure.
．PROCESS OF AIR INFLATION
．Flow of Pressure
As the accumulated pressure reaches the mark, the inflation is ready.
．ADEQUACY OF PRESSURE
Air pressure level is shown through the pressure display.
．STRUCTURE- PRODUCT APPEARANCE
Product Structure and Usage
Four easy steps to remove air pressure tubes.
．STRUCTURE- PRODUCT INSTITUTIONS
Internal Mechanical Design
A.S.M is designed to appear like a light on the bike. When removed, it can be used as a flashlight. It is designed with an internal structure to accumulate pressure in providing electricity to light and pressure to refuel tire.
