Sandwichbike: Flat-Packed Wooden Bicycle
While it first hit the design scene nearly 7 years ago, the Sandwichbike was nothing more than a pipe dream at the time. Now all these years later, designer and engineer Ite Kingma is ready to hit the retail market with this innovative take on the classic bicycle.
You will quickly notice upon first glance that the bike is crafted from two pieces of pressed plywood along with a single speed drivetrain, but that’s not where the uniqueness of the project comes from. This bicycle comes packaged in a flat packed box, neatly laid out with all of the parts ready to be assembled by the customers themselves. Setup was created to be a fun project while giving users the opportunity to learn about both the mechanics and anatomy of their new 2 wheeled companion.
