A hand-crafted wooden bicycle created by Yojiro Oshima


An amazing wooden bike completely hand-crafted is created by Yojiro Oshima. The young artist studies Crafts and Industrial Design at the Musashino Art University of Tokyo. He aimed in an exploration of an everyday object and in its redesign with quite unexpected materials. This project was the subject of his final thesis and is named “Fusion”. He sculpted each piece out of hard maple wood and he even hollowed them out in order to lighten the bike’s weight. Even the wheels, also made of wood, feature an arc between the spokes and the rim to reduce large impacts and to soften the ride. He also designed curves that create a really beautiful and elegant look.
