Dutch design agency Springtime scooped up a Spark Design & Architecture Award this year for a concept that promotes efficiency in eco-friendly transport. Bike Dispenser units would ideally be placed in cities where bike rental/free bike exchange programs are promoted, allowing easy one-way journeys and convenient pick-up/drop-off locations in various neighborhoods, while also keeping everyone's costs down. Riders pay a small fee to rent the bikes which are outfitted with RFID chips to track and log journeys. The nitty gritty of return conditions, repairs, and theft, aren't clearly addressed, but it's just in concept mode for now, after all.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
