Designer Basten Leijh believed that two wooden panels could deliver the funkiest ride and designed this beautiful wooden sandwichbike which was presented during the 2013 Salone del Mobile. Sandwichbike is a Dutch design originally that was inspired by the concept of flat packing and home assembly. Basten came up with a concept that, instead of a welded frame, it is engineered as a ‘sandwich’ of two weather coated frames of layered plywood. Bonded together by ‘smart cylinders’, the frames and components become a rock-solid piece of technology that is both durable and extremely attractive. Everything you need is in the box including the tools, so you can start assembling right away. In total, there are less than 50 parts. Bleijh is now taking pre-orders at Sandwichbikes.
