Indonesia Project 1: Bamboo Bike from Temanggung

Designer: inggih S. Kartono, Piranti Works.

Project (Still in prototype phase): In the Temanggung region of Central Java, Bamboo is a part of village people’s daily lives. Piranti Works takes advantage of the abundance of bamboo in the region; the local’s knowledge of working with it; and the desirable properties inherent in bamboo such as light weight and strength, to create a sustainable mode of transport in an area lacking in public transport.

Why I like it: By incorporating local craftsman’s knowledge with an environmentally sustainable material, the designer includes the community into the design and production process.
