Lignum Nature Friendly E Bike by Yunus Emre Pektas

Home > Winners > #53997


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lignum

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Nature Friendly E Bike

INSPIRATION:
The design inspiration of Lignum was to create an eco friendly electrical bike while making it easy to manufacture. Making the main body parts, CNC machined plywood and laser cut aluminum made this dream come true. Using plywood, a natural material as the main element of the bike makes the production and manufacturing less harmful to nature against other production techniques.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Lignum's goal was to design an electrical bike that didn't use the common pipe structure and produce it in an eco friendly way. Lignum focuses on the flexibility, sustainability and easy processing features of plywood. Plywood combined with aluminum parts meets the expectation of a solid body in a bike. Easy processing of plywood made the production very easy with CNC machinery, the most cost efficient way of production. 300W motor supports the user, up to a distance of approximately 75km.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The main purpose was to design a vehicle that was eco friendly. Due to hazardous gases and materials our world is becoming a bad place for us to live. The most healthy way for us to transport is through bicycles. Lignum offers eco friendly production technique and a motor which lets the cyclist use if they get tired while cycling.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2015 in Ankara, Turkey and ended in May 2015

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The plywood parts are ash wood. Metal parts are made from light-weight aluminum. 300W motor ables the user to go up to a distance of 75km. All parts are made from CNC machinery and laser cutting.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The dimensions are 1750mm x 1000mm x 500mm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
When I began the design process I aimed for the natural material use in bicycle design. So I started out by trying out different woods. While I was researching for the right material, I came across ash wood which was spesificly the right material for bike frame constructions. Ash wood is a very durable material against an impact or other stresses while cycling.The 300W electrical motor between the main plywood parts boosts the cyclist when they get tired.

CHALLENGE:
The production time nearly took 2 weeks for the prototype but the main challenge was before production. The hardest part for the design was finding the right materials, wood and paint to make it resistant agaisnt to all weather conditions.
