A Protean Solution to Biking with a Laptop

View all 6 Photos

One of the toughest challenges for designers today is exploring how to adapt established fields to our modern reliance on connectivity. This becomes especially challenging when dealing with a field such as cycling that often mandates a minimal amount of cargo for one to ride comfortably. Working for the exhibition Cyke!/Bike!, Swedish designer Filip Ridderström has developed an adaptable solution with the Bikebasket/Laptopbag. Both a case for ones laptop and a basket attachable to any standard bike frame, the design embraces its cargo rather than trying to mitigate its burden. When in its laptop case mode, it is a stylish and sturdy container that also has a dedicated bike lock holder. When in its basket mode, it sits open on the front of the bike with a flexible storage pouch. The project also includes a dynamo usb charger so that one can charge a phone or computer while riding, powered by the ride itself. This protean design enables one to never be slowed down by a heavy laptop ride again.

Nathaniel

Amid the unrest of earning his Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from RISD, Nathaniel manages to find the time to read, write, hang out with friends, play drums, and listen to music. Nathaniel has learned a lot about architecture firsthand thanks to opportunities to live and work in Rome and Brooklyn during the past year. Coming from a family with strong roots in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Nathaniel has always maintained a strong love for NYC especially, and after his studies finish up in Providence he may move there for a while. He hasn't decided yet. You can connect with him via Linkedin or by visiting his Portfolio page.
