Abstract:


Rotterdam Identity
The Citzens of Rotterdam feel strongly connected with the city. The Rotterdam-Locks should transmit the message beeing proud the modern architecture of the city.

Function
Excuting the Shape of the Bridges I found the shape functionaly fitting for bicycle locks. The design of the lock corresponds to the bridge in form and color. The research for the right material and a safe and easy way of manufacturing was a big part of the project.

Telling a Story 
The shape of the locks combines the functionality and security of a U-lock with the iconic architecture of Rotterdam. The locks should be seen as a personal idol and be held in different positions on the bicycle frame depending on their shape.
