The handmade wooden bike from Openbike is part of an initiative created by Spain-based Arquimaña to encourage city dwellers to take more control of the role they play when it comes to pollution. The bike is designed to help make it as accessible as possible and can be downloaded as files from the design studio for DIYers to build from a local factory. It is hoped that this will enable citizens to feel that they are a greater part of the solution to urban pollution rather than seeing it as a problem from which they are being removed.
The handmade wooden bike from Openbike has been designed as part of the fab city's global initiative that challenges cities around the world to produce and consume everything they need by 2054.
