Customization for the masses may appear odious to some designers, but French designer Tristan Kopp has found a way to preserve the essence of a product while providing end users with the flexibility for personalization. prodUser Bicycle System is a modular system that allows individuals to combine various components – connectors, framework, and extra add-ons – of their choice in creating a custom bicycle. The beauty is in the freedom of the system, dubbed “open-source” like software counterparts, which can be employed and adapted without the usual jaw-dropping price tag. The system, samples, and literal blueprints are currently showcased in Istanbul’s Design Biennale.
