FINALIST of Cyclist House
Easy Rider House
Name: Théo Miquel
Institution / Company: Super Standard
Two-wheels lifestyle is a lifestyle of freedom. Traveling unrestricted. Forming a closer connection to the road and landscapes. Driving with high speed or slowly taking the time to stroll. In this cyclist house competition, the proposal is a side-car plugged into a bike to enable a nomadic lifestyle. Easy to use for riding in the morning, taking a break in the afternoon and resting at night.
The side-car is a triangular prism naturally braced. The structure is made from an assembly of steel tubes and rests on an electric motorized wheel powered by solar panels. The side-car can be plugged into any type of bicycle with an articulated arm.
The Easy Rider House is self-sufficient in water and electricity. The proposal incorporates ready-made elements already found on camping vehicles, enhancing the comfort of nomadic living. The camping equipments are designed to be foldable for maximum compactness. A pop-up tent unfolds on the ground. A trunk on jacks opens to provide access to storage and tent. An awning system unfolds to protect against rain or sunlight.
This is a story of living and driving lifestyle at the opposite of the daily life rat race, it’s an invitation to ride the dolce via.
