dots design studio is mainly focused on experimental processes of various materials, such as metal and wood. they’re enthusiastic in pushing them beyond their limitation both conceptually and functionally in order to achieve a design dialect traditionally not found in the industry. the ‘plybike’ uses wood that has been developed and prove functional for outdoor use. the combination of wood oak, teak and back walnut place a balance between art and function in a common classic style. of course the joints are made of high-tensile steel, with aluminum accents such as the handlebar and crankset. dots object plan on producing only 500 of them, accompanied by a single speed rear coaster brake.
