Automotive inspired eye-wear concepts; designed for OsKorp.
These concepts put a different perspective on sporting eye-wear design, taking inspiration from the visual design languages of various well-renowned sports and super car models.
The Bolwell Ikara concept takes a look at the design premise of a simple, lightweight driver-focused vehicle, which can usefully re-purpose mechanical systems from existing production cars. This design philosophy was evident in the original Ikara; of which a small number were manufactured in the 1970’s and made use of a VW Golf powertrain, mid-mounted for neutral front/rear weight distribution. This new version is designed to run a mid-mounted Subaru flat-4 engine with the Sube transaxle at the back.
Mazda XCM challenges the conventional cross-country mountain-bike. Control geometry is based upon a typical 29 inch cross-country bike, but with a unique design which eliminates high maintenance items such as external gears and hydraulic suspension dampeners.
