Design student turns recycled plastic into a bike



Israeli design student Dror Peleg has produced a concept bicycle that uses recycled plastics and injection mold technology. Named 'Frii' the bike is completely solid (no tyres, no air) and stems from our desire to find more sustainable ways to travel and to mass produce. Compared to the production of traditional metal bicycle, the process is said to be less labour intensive and more accessible in that it can be customised to characteristics of local industry.  The construction of the bike includes an injected saddle, which can be adjusted to accommodate various height or riders, and ribs which are used throughout for strength. A pyramid shaped bottom by the crank is included to stability. See more of the concept bicycle here.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
