…but what they have in common is that they're not easy to transport. Marine Fondin, an Industrial Design student at Switzerland's ECAL, tackled this problem for her recent U-Lift project.
"The workshop stand is a product that is systematically found in the workshops or garages of people who wish and who like to maintain their motorcycle at home. U-Lift is the innovation and the redesign of this massive and bulky object, in order to make it practical and compact to take it into the world of motorcycle travel."
"Lubricating a chain or checking an oil level are essential maintenance that must be carried out regularly on a motorcycle, especially during long trips. These actions are not always easy to do when you don't have any equipment."
"This product has been designed and adapted to offer the user the opportunity to carry out his maintenance, alone, in a simple and secure way."
Fondin scored an "Excellent" grade for the project. You can see more of her work here.
