Avocado-Inspired Wooden Frame by Bike Studio Jan

View all 20 Photos

Currently being developed by the Czech workshop Bike Studio Jan, this wooden bike design resembles the outline of an avocado. The curved form is handcrafted from more than forty layers of veneer. Each strip is a single-piece cut so that the resulting frame is both flexible and strong. As seen in the prototype, the design is naturally finished with epoxy resin and paired with simple black components made of dural metal alloy. Take a behind-the-scenes look at the bicycle on Youtube.

Davide was born and raised in the tiny Piemonte town of Biella, world-famous for its textiles and the hometown of Michaelangelo Pistoletto. A life-long passion for design and innovation led Davide to New York City, where he lives with his family. He created Gessato in 2006, and he's been pioneering new communication tools and techniques ever since.
