MiniMo - DIY monopattino/bici Kit

A real exercise of design, this project is based on the transformation of a simple wood board into a finish product, dynamic and functional. A “two in one” object that you can use and modify several times, according to your needs: bike with no pedals for kids who are making their first steps or kick scooter for those who walk already.
Everything starts from a handy and compact packaging, shaped as a small suitcase, with minima components. This packaging has simple and playful forms that can attract and captivate children.
After all, everything is designed for them. The kit is completely made of wood, realised with the CNC milling machine and you will need just a few moves and some simple tools to obtain the final object. Children will have really the impression to have built their bike/kick scooter with their own hands, in a recreational but also pedagogic process that marks the entire project.

Because of the success of this first model, the kit will be developed in different versions, such as the XL one for adults or the tricycle.

Project MADE IN FABLAB realised in the Innovation Gym, Rome.
