Posts Tagged ‘The Peugeot Bike DL121’
Peugeot Design Laboratory’s sweet new concept DL121 bicycle is described as “an exploration in contrast”. The contrast between function and aesthetics, and the contrast in finishes were two dominant concepts implemented by Peugeot transportation designer Cathal Loughnane. Loughnane’s primary objective was to play on the theme of a dynamic diagonal separation between the two halves of bicycle. At the front of the bike there is a deep and rich copper, while the rear is finished in pure brilliant white. The bike features innovative leather work. As well as the saddle there is also a luggage area ingeniously integrated into the frame. Double zips give easy access to a space ideal for precious objects such as a digital tablet, which is a plus to the urban rider/commuter who is needs to ride with their gadgets.
