Bamboo Tricycle

The tricycle is a long story attached to each child’s memories. It is interesting to see village children playing with bamboo bikes. The simplicity of the vehicles and happiness of children are the inspirations of this design.

Made by bamboo with wooden wheels, which are popular materials in Vietnam, the tricycle is threated with care in every detail without any chemical treatments. The bike may be decayed with time but the kids will learn showing consideration for its nature. Moreover, all the parts are linked by bamboo bolts and then covered by ropes so that kids would be excited to assemble and repair the bikes themselves or modify the design to their needs.

By designing this bike with materials, which can be easily found everywhere, we hope to not only bring true happiness to children but also remind us about our childhood.
