MA work

Increasingly the greatest challenge for design is to do more with less, to create products that make efficient use of resources, yet are able to deliver unique, long-lasting user experience.

My degree project is a vehicle concept aimed at urban dwellers who rely on public, shared and human powered transport as modes of daily mobility and for whom their own car is all about self indulgence, a way to enjoy leisure time. The car powers itself entirely with solar energy restored during long periods when parked and when driven, delivers freedom and joy of mobility, carbon free.
