Today the Bamboo Bicycle Club in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University successfully built the world’s first ever bamboo and 3D printed bicycle at London’s Design Museum.
“Bamboo is one of the world’s most important carbon sequestrator [carbon capture], we hope we can encourage more widespread usage of this sustainable material”
Wilf Meynell a director at Studio Bark
“It was always going to be a challenge combining highly engineered products with an ‘artesian’ style build, especially using such an unprocessed natural material such as bamboo. After an intense but ultimately successful weekend, this type of modular construction has really shown the potential to create truly bespoke Bicycle frame design, at home – perhaps taking a little more time!”
