Projecto Kombi: People-Powered Cardboard Flintstone Van Hits the Streets of São Paulo

The cardboard structure can hold four passengers who, with the amusing charm of the Flintstones, take to their feet and run along the concrete roads. Attracting attention across the city, the combi causes children to stop and peer at the sight of feet beneath the structure, while onlookers hang over their balconies to take a second look.

In a country progressing swiftly with green initiatives, the cardboard installation offers a creative and light-hearted take on heavy environmental topics. The mobile sculpture encourages environmental consciousness by making a subtle critique of car culture.

    This is positively the best way to see a city. And in London, you’ll travels far faster than public transport and make more friends.
