For who?

The Hema Design Contest in 2012, with the theme 'design a true Hema hero'.


A seat for on the back of a bicycle for people over 7 years old. Thanks to the leg supports your legs won't drag along on the road. The supports could be placed in two ways, to suit both males and females.

Why this design?

My university asked me to design something with the Dutch culture in mind. One of the things the Dutch are most known for are bicycles and how adults ride along an the back of those bikes. Bicycle seats already exist, but this seat prevents your feet from dragging on the ground without the need of 2 separate feet supports that need to be mounted.
