For this project I started with a research into a scientific company called ‘Amolf’ they are based in Amsterdam Science park and their main research is to reduce weight of already existing materials on a micro scale.

To reduce weight in these structures and forms they where inspired by the wings of flies and other light weighted insects. In my project I used the aesthetics of those structures to create a bike handle bar. Taking away the material by plasma cutting and sanding.
