Diploma Product Design

As part of my thesis project "Punti Cycles", I have developed a bicycle that can be mass produced. It aims to take advantage of mass production without sacrificing the benefits of customizing the bike to the needs of the individual. From the configuration process to the ergonomic analysis to the design of an aesthetic and manufacturable product, the project addresses a variety of complex aspects of this mass customizable bicycle frame concept.
