Designer Wei-Chih Hsu [2]‘s build-it-yourself D-Bike is a flat-pack, cardboard kid’s bicycle that is assembled much like a jigsaw. All of the bike’s components are punched out from a pre-cut, reinforced honeycomb cardboard sheet, and then simply fixed into their correct spots to create a sweet new two-wheeler for a tot! The D-Bike is a 2012 Red Dot Design [3] award winner.
