Zheng Chin Design

incomplete, imperfect, impermanent

Wooden bicycle “prototype 2”

My Honours year project, at RMIT Industrial design Melbourne.


To explore the use of timber as an ecologically sustainable material for bicycle frame construction. And create a skilfully detailed hand-crafted object, that exhibits craft and bespoke elements, and ultimately is an object of desire.

The frame was constructed using laminated slats of European beech and mahogany, and is coated with shellac and finished with beeswax.
