A Colorful Pedal-Powered Folding Wall (Video) by Farwaste
From sharpening knives to blending smoothies, the potential of pedal power seems virtually endless. Italian design studio Farwaste has combined the wonders of the bicycle with upcycling in B*wall, a project that transforms old objects that have reached the end of their lifecycle into a beautiful and functional installation.
Powered by a stationary bicycle, the B*wall uses a series of pulleys and cables to open and close a folding partition wall for the multipurpose events room at Laboratori di Via Baltea 3 in Turin, Italy. Recycled materials used include: 90 square meters of carpet left behind after the 2014 International Book Fair of Turin; 70 square meters of honeycomb cardboard originally used as packaging for print materials; and unused bicycle components.
