BlueSkyBike is the result of the collaboration between Richard Heat, an industrial designer, and Blue Sky Design. It’s an electric folding bike concept that aims style conscious urban commuters, it was also inspired by the designer’s own experience from commuting in sydney’s western suburbs to the city every day via train. There are 3 primary objectives for this bike design: practicality, storage capacity and style. Richard has to combine these 3 elements into electric folding bike more successfully than any previous attempts in the past to give electric bicycles a brand new identity. Currently Richard is looking for internship/work opportunities, feel free to contact him here.
