Northern Lights Bikeshare

New bikeshare system for Copenhagen - competetion entry


In 2009 the city of Copenhagen in Denmark hosted an open international design competition to get ideas for the next generation of the city's bikeshare system.

I teamed up with fellow KaosPilot Thomas Reibke to create the Northern Lights concept, which combines old carrier style bikes with modern mobile, web and payment technology.

Bikes can be parked on any street corner, eliminating the traditional fixed docking stations. In the night, LED's light up the big green front carrier to create a strong iconing look.
