BAZUKA is a concept bike made out of scrap metal.
It was conceptualized and executed as a part of a
metal workshop in a group.
The restriction of only getting to use scrap metal proved fruitful in the longer run as the product got a rustic appeal which complemented its theme and overall structure.
This artefact has been conceptualized and executed
in a span of five days.
Upcycling at its best
The idea was to have a superbike structure with a rider and a pillion passenger.
The tyres were made out of wheel chains bundled up together, while the rest of the body was assembled through welding a number of pieces belonging to a range of components together.
The sunglasses were made out of reject plastic taken off a headlight's cover.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Each part was assembled with great care, paying great attention to anatomy, proportions in terms of the people to the vehicle as well as the individual component.
The assembly was a constantly evolving process with a number of trials and errors.
BAZUKA is a result of upcycling, constant experimentation and a lot of fun.
This project helped me realize the value of materials and instilled a deeper interest and understanding of sustainability within me, as well as making me realize the amazing results of collaborative design work.
