Bikes Designed From People's Drawings

Gianluca Gimini, Velocipedia, Draw Bikes from Memory

In 2009, designer Gianluca Gimini started a project by approaching friends and strangers, handed them a pencil and paper, and asked them to draw a bicycle from memory. 

In 2016, Gimini selected the drawings he found "most interesting, genuine, and diverse," and rendered them as if they were real. 

He calls it, Velocipedia.

"I collected hundreds of drawings, building up a collection that I think is very precious. There is an incredible diversity of new typologies emerging from these crowd-sourced and technically error-driven drawings. A single designer could not invent so many new bike designs in 100 lifetimes and this is whyI look at this collection in such awe. "
