You can eat this if you really want to, but you may get a few (hundred) splinters in your mouth. Designed by Bleijh Industrial, the ‘Sandwichbike’ is a Dutch design, inspired by the concept of flat-packing, home assembly and the designer’s never-ending drive to create exceptional products.
The bike was engineered into a ‘sandwich’ of two weather coated frames of layered plywood. It was then bonded together by ‘smart cylinders’, becoming a durable piece of what can only be described as technology – despite the primitive base origin of the materials.
Due to the size and number of components used, less than 50 in total, the Sandwich bike – before assembly – fits snugly into a small, flat package and can be sent by post. Everything needed for assembly of the bike can be found in the box, including all the tools required, which is surprisingly few. We’re definitely coming along for the ride with this neat piece of kit.
