Eco Bike

FIRST PRIZE in the competition Eco Bike Design Contest 2012, organized by Solsonica SPA e POLI.design and sponsored by ADI Associazione Italiana per il Disegno Industriale.
The concept was born to create a solution that integratesan electrically assisted bicycle with a photovoltaic shelter in an elegant and easy to use way.
Photovoltaic shelter is the connection between the sun and the bicycle with a strong and symbolic character, inspired by a funnel that collects, processes and canalize the solar energy towards the bicycle.
The bike has a clear aesthetic relationship with the recharging station, reinforcing the concept of global solution.
