Punkt. Urban Mobility Project revealed at Salone del Mobile
The Punkt. Urban Mobility Project (PUMP) is a collaboration established by Petter Neby and John Tree. Lowie Vermeersch provided key input about urban mobility while Dan Hill gave essential advice on integrated transport systems.
PUMP involved three European design schools: the RCA in London, Lausanne’s ECAL and Design Academy Eindhoven. The brief was to create a consumer electronics product that enhances personal mobility in the urban environment by making electric-assisted cycling easier and more accessible. The design was required to be specific to where the three Schools are situated. The revealed prototypes of the bicycles reflect the distinctive culture and topography of London, Lausanne and Eindhoven perfectly.
