This electric scooter fit for a Bond movie is something you can own right now

Electric scooters are the rage in modern times given their compact form and practical aesthetics. The two-wheeled rides are well suited for urban landscape, and their minimal carbon footprint is mild on the already battered planet. Most electric scooters are made out of plastic material but if you’re someone who’s craving a classy electric commuter, look no further than the Nano designed by Bandit 9.

One can call it the luxury option of electric scooters as the Nano has been designed with maximum precision. Every curve and edge are refined to the last possible intricate details. Bandit 9 views the two-wheeler as one belonging to a “modern art exhibition” riding on the streets of “Paris during Fashion Week.”  We like to portray it as one fit for a Bond movie though.

Crafted out of Rolex steel (904L) and polished in an attractive silver finish, the scooter is laden with a lasting impression. The makers have created two separate versions of the electric ride– Nano variant that maxes out at a top speed of 45 km/h and Nano+ model capable of going at 75 km/h. The range on them is the same as they both clock 60 miles on a full charge of the 4.2 kWh battery juiced up in just four hours.

The all-metal finish of the electric scooter exudes luxury in the glossy silver hue and the makers are rightful in portraying the Nano as an object to behold with the eyes. The front section is covered completely in the body frame molded out of a single piece of metal. That gives the electric wheel hub motor-powered scooter an elongated retro feel. From the rear, the Nano looks like a modern moped in its best possible version, and will surely appeal to the young crowd.

Bandit 9 claims that the electric motor requires little or no maintenance at all which is another advantage to owning it. The Nano base model comes for a price tag of $4,499 and the Nano+ version costs a bit more at $4,990. While this electric scooter is quite steeply-priced, for someone who values class in things they own, this is worth the investment.

Razor’s upbeat cargo e-scooter gets customizable second passenger seat

It has been more than two decades now since Razor burst into the scene with a scooter that sold five million units. Fast forward to the present day, the brand has a line of kick scooters and other popular wheelers. Now they are blurring the lines of an electric scooter and cargo bike with an attractive fusion, city riders will acknowledge.

Dubbed the EcoSmart Cargo, this two-wheeler can be labeled as a more advanced version of the EcoSmart Metro. The difference is an adult passenger seat and a beefy rear rack for hauling cargo. The scooter supports a total weight of 300 pounds, and the rear removable seat for the passenger makes way for more space to ferry things. EcoSmart Cargo’s convertible rack system makes this possible. So, it can be a passenger seat with underneath storage, a customizable rack, or a basket depending on the needs.

Designer: Razor

According to the makers, the electric vehicle is meant for adults and focuses on high performance and maximum utility. The two-wheeler has a very stylish design in the form of a roomy bamboo deck and olive green body. There’s no dearth of power as well since the cargo scooter has a 1,000-watt high torque motor fed by the 46.8V lithium-ion battery pack. It can hurl to a top speed of 19.9 mph and boasts a range of up to 16.6 miles on a single charge. There are five-speed levels to have maximum control over the needed throttle. The digital display shows the current speed, battery level and speed level.

Riding comfort is one of the priorities here as the 16-inch fat pneumatic tires ensure a smooth ride even over bumps. The padded seat can be adjusted for height and position. To protect the riders from the perils of inclement weather, there are front and rear fenders. Razor EcoSmart Cargo carries a price tag of $1,099 which is lesser than the Segway SuperScooter GT Series GT1 which hits 37.3 mph. The latter however has that bit extra to justify a steep price tag of $2,500.

This pet-friendly e-scooter comes with a secure storage compartment for your dogs to ride shotgun!

Mopet is a pet-friendly e-scooter with an integrated storage compartment so small dogs can come along with you on rides in a secure crate.

There aren’t many options for dog owners to get around cities with their little pup in tow. Resolving to pulling their dogs on leashes or stowing smaller pups inside bicycle baskets, the options are either inconvenient or unsafe. Providing a solution for dog owners to crate their dogs around with them, Mopet is an electric scooter design that integrates a spacious and secure storage compartment where owners can keep their dogs while they scoot around from place to place.

Mopet was primarily designed as a means for city residents to bring along their little pups on trips that would be too far for smaller dogs. Since safety is the number one priority when considering modes of pet-friendly transportation, Mopet is equipped with plenty of safety features. Users can turn on the e-bike’s high beam LEDs when riding at night to make their e-bike and little dog visible to oncoming traffic.

Whether their city is going through its annual summer heatwave or their dog is too tired to keep walking, Mopet is outfitted with a large-capacity battery that allows travel for 60km with a full charge.

Foldable by design, Mopet features a hinge fastening system near the base of its handlebars that collapses to optimize the e-bike’s storability. Weighing only 25 kilograms (50 pounds), Mopet can easily slip into the trunk of a car.

When it comes to bringing your dog along on trips, considering your pet’s safety is a top priority. The designers behind Mopet introduced an innovative answer to pet-friendly modes of transportation. With an integrated fastening system and folding mechanism, Mopet strikes the perfect balance of safety and practicality.

Honda announced an e-scooter with a roof so people can deliver parcels even in the rain

With a canopy that provides shelter against rain or even direct sun in some cases, the Gyro Canopy e is Honda’s revamp of its popular Gyro three-wheeled business-scooter line. The new Canopy e looks rather similar to a concept Honda debuted back at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, but now features a much more detailed design that looks like the company’s serious about putting the vehicle into production. Notably, the Canopy e even comes with an electric powertrain, and more importantly, swappable batteries that allow delivery personnel to swiftly and easily swap out batteries instead of waiting to recharge them.

Currently exclusive to Japan (where it’s classed as a moped), the Gyro Canopy e comes with seating for one, with a cargo tray at the back. To give the rider stability, the moped sport three wheels (like a tricycle) while still maintaining a relatively slim profile that’s perfect for zipping through narrow streets and bylanes. If the rider finds themselves in a bit of a jam, the Canopy e even has a reverse gear to back out of traffic, potentially bad roads, and other sticky situations. Finally, as its name suggests, the Canopy e comes with a canopy that sprawls from the front all the way to the back. Sure, it leaves most of the sides exposed, but its profile is perfect to block out most of the rain that would hit a rider from the front as they drive forwards. The front of the canopy (or the windshield) even has a wiper to ensure perfect visibility in bad weather.

Perfect for intra-city deliveries (be it food, mail parcels, or even logistical use), the electric trike comes with a range of 77 kilometers (48 miles) on a full charge, with an average speed of 30 km/h (18.6 mph), which sounds about right considering it’ll be operating within city zones and catering to internal speed limits. For now, the Honda Gyro Canopy e comes in 2 color options (white and red), with a pretty sizable price tag of 715,000 yen, or around $6,295… something that may sound pretty high for the individual, but shouldn’t cost much for businesses, who will probably buy the scooters in bulk.

Meet Beospeed, an electric scooter that showcases steel edges + classic leather accents for its aesthetic inspiration

BeoSpeed is an electric scooter concept that follows Bang & Olufsen’s iconic design language, bringing a contemporary twist to a classic taste that won’t ever go out of style.

For decades, Bang & Olufsen has been known for designing high-end consumer electronics, from headphones to speakers. Known for exquisite attention to detail, sophisticated design, and quality audio, Bang & Olufsen has remained within its own niche market for as long as it’s been around. Inspiring young designers in the meantime, Buenos Aires-based designer Luca Martini conceptualized an electric scooter in the design language of Bang & Olufsen called BeoSpeed.

Aiming to capture the electronics company’s laser focus on the details, Martini outfitted BeoSpeed with a polished, clean exterior that asserts its durable, hefty weight with a stainless steel coat. Striking a mix between modern and classic, BeoSpeed dons natural leather seating and handlebars reminiscent of Bang & Olufsen’s headphone cushions. Working Bang & Olufsen’s curated sophistication into BeoSpeed, the electric scooter features smooth edges, minimally adorned wheels, and stripped-back leather accents that give it a retro and slicked-back personality. Soft, warm headlights and wheel lights are subdued with leather straps and metal stencils, giving the scooter an elusive edge while coasting through night-dark city streets.

Martini’s BeoSpeed captures Bang & Olufsen’s vivid brand through a stainless steel coat that implicitly marks its sheer weight and durability, minimal, natural leather accents, and metallic stencils engraved in various places over the scooter’s frame. Like a pair of Bang & Olufsen headphones, BeoSpeed exudes cool, bringing a contemporary twist to a classic taste that won’t ever go out of style.

This electric scooter folds down to half the size of a conventional kick scooter for easy city transportation!

Smacircle is a redesign of the electric kick scooter that folds down to half the size of a traditional kick scooter for easy transport and seamless maneuverability.

Getting around crowded cities always feels harder than it should be. Even if you live in a driving city like Los Angeles, finding parking is near impossible and then there’s the walk from your parking space to your destination. In New York City, you always have to add in the time it takes to actually walk to and from the subway station. In walking cities, the sidewalks just get too packed. Introducing a new way of getting around the city, designer Rice Mak conceptualized Smacircle, an electric scooter that folds down to half the size of a traditional scooter so you’ll always have a ride as you make your way through the city.

According to Mak, Smacircle solves the “last kilometer” problem of most crowded cities. While subways cover the majority of urban areas, the distance between each stop is at least one to two kilometers, which means your destination is likely one to two kilometers away from each subway stop. Smacircle is an electric scooter that can fold down to a size you’ll feel comfortable with bringing onto the subway and then once you’re out, you can zoom in the bike lane for your destination.

Featuring an integrated motor in its vertical support bar, Smacircle folds in three places to become one-third of its operating size. Unfolded, Smacircle reaches the same height and width as a conventional kick scooter, but has an advantage over the latter for its compact folded size, dropping down to half the size of a traditional folded kick scooter.

Edging out the conventional scooter further, Smacircle comes with built-in shock absorbers that work to maintain the scooter’s small, but mighty build, enhancing its overall maneuverability. In the center of the scooter’s handlebar, just above the motor, Mak incorporated a digital display panel where users would be able to read the scooter’s battery life, speed, and mileage. Equipping Smacircle with everything a city rider might need for their commute, located on the same display panel, users can access the scooter’s high beams and USB socket.

Designer: Rice Mak

Smacircle comes with a small kickstand to remain in place when at a halt.

Boomerang-shaped electric scooter is designed to be an effective urban e-bike for hire service!

Electric bike concepts come in all shapes and sizes – and we have seen some unique ones in the past – Iron Man worthy bike, a very alien-worthy ride, or the geometric urban rider. However, this electric scooter in retro-futurism style by creative designer Alexander Yamaev and his team is somewhat different from the crowd – it takes inspiration from the basic V shape we see in a boomerang.

The electric scooter concept thought of by Alexander pushes the envelope of being a rebel while still being assumingly practical. The L-shaped uni-frame design of the bike has an upfront geometric structure meant for a solo rider. The bike has a very upright driving position and a slim frame, indicating its urban commuting characteristics. One glance at those unified front and rear wheels in the frame, and it looks like anything but a bike! That said, it does have a cut in the body, creating a rectangular element that helps the front wheel navigate. The front of the body also has three headlights and two brake lights that stand out like antennas! The headlights can be flipped into the housing when not required, further exemplifying the scooter’s unibody design aesthetics.

The kickstand comes with the ability to mount the phone for navigation aids, whereas, the battery resides in the downward slope of the body, below the seat. Objectively, the bike holds no space for anything more than its rider, and for sure, it’s not designed to carry any luggage with you. However, I can see this bike being used for hourly rentals, quickly zipping people across the city and easily stored when not in use, especially because of its tiny frame!

Top 15 flat-packed designs that reimagine how to ship & store everything from automotive to architecture!

As the world grows smaller, physically and metaphorically, we need product designs that save space, are easy to store and portable, especially as our lives have become more flexible with remote work taking over. This is why flat-packed designs intrigue me because they check all of these boxes! But when you think “flat-pack”, the only thing that comes to mind is packaging and that is why I wanted to curate a list that showed that pretty much anything can be flat-packed – scooters, tiny homes, electric vehicles, pet shelters, photobooths, furniture, and more. The following list has 15 designs spanning over multiple verticles that showcase just how versatile this design principle can be. These designs not only rank high on space efficiency but also eliminate the usage of heavier space-consuming designs. They are functional, ergonomic, minimal, modular and just outright brilliant!

ooo

It’s worth noticing how the OO Stool does such a great job of combining sustainability along with technology and a pinch of heritage. Made from a single board of bamboo plywood, the stool is CNC machine-cut in a way that integrates every single aspect of the stool into its design. Everything you need to build the OO Stool sits within that flat-packed jigsaw puzzle of bamboo pieces, minimizing waste by using as much negative space as possible. The legs form the outside, while the dual-layered seat of the stool sits on the inside, with the negative space being filled by tiny rectangular pieces that help lock the stool in place, and even a bamboo hammer to help assemble the stool! The OO Stool uses absolutely no glue, screws, or nails… just really smart designing and Japanese joinery techniques.

plus

How cool would it be if we could roll up our furniture just like we roll up our clothes to save space right? Well, designer Richard Price kind of make it happen by creating Plus+ – a flat-packed furniture system that maximizes living space and minimizes storage space! Plus+ fits your needs and comes with multiple configurations. The flexible furniture system increases its likelihood to adapt by using a snap-together frame with a joint system across the whole range. The modular design can be easily be assembled and upgraded with new features or additional accessories which enables it to grow with your needs or new spaces.

Products can be functionally beneficial and aesthetically beautiful without having to be complicated. Fold Lamp proves just this. Destined for a life within a domestic dining room, the magnesium lamp is elegantly suspended from the ceiling, introducing a gentle glow to the room. However, elegant aesthetics aside, it’s the consideration to the manufacture of the product that makes this project so intriguing. Constructed out of a single piece of magnesium that has been efficiently metal-stamped, Fold Lamp doesn’t require any additional hardware! So, what benefit does this have? Well visually distinctive form aside, in the unfolded orientation, it can significantly reduce shipping expenses from international manufacturers!

Created using merino felt wool and birch wood, the Wool Lodge is a safe haven of sorts for your pet. You can arrange and form the flat-packed structure by yourself easily. The lodge features merino felt roof, with the rest of the structure being made from wood. Defleur’s lodge basically has two functions. Spacious enough to fit your cat’s litter box, the lodge shelters the box within its structure. Your cat can sneak away, and pee or poop in privacy, away from any prying eyes. On the other hand, you can install a soft cushion or mattress instead of a litter box in the lodge. This creates a personal space for your pet, it could be a cat or a doggo on the smaller side! Whenever your pet wants to simply relax and getaway, they can hop into the shelter, safe from any external noises or extreme temperatures.

spinel

This flatpack design unfolds into a layered lamp! Spinel is a hanging light designed to be easily transformed. The main goal was to create a product that didn’t take up too much space and was also sustainable. “Our responsibility as designers is to produce objects that occupy the smallest possible volume. The purpose is to use the least amount of raw material, producing long-lifespan objects that can be easily recycled,” says Guille Cameron. The origami-like form is minimal, elegant, and certainly unique. Unfolding the lamp adds a dynamic layer to the product and the wooden design itself is a warm addition to any space.

foldio3

With the Foldio3, tongue-tantalizing photographs are just literally a portfolio case and 10 seconds away. While most traditional photo set-ups comprise a room full of equipment and hours of setting up, the Foldio3’s innovative design puts all of that into a small flat-packed case that can fit right under your arm. Open it out and assemble it using the magnetic locks and you have yourself a studio-grade lightbox for your product photography. On the top of the box are 3 LED strips too, negating the need for those massive bulky studio lights. The Foldio3 comes with two backdrops too, black and white, depending on the kind of shot you need. You can even use your own green backdrop for those green-screen applications.

The Folpen is tinier and more compact than your usual pen, however, what sets it apart are its components. The pen comprises of an ink refill and a plastic sheath. Surrounded by a ribbed plastic sheath, resembling the covers used to protect our iPads and tablets, the refill is enveloped by the sheath, forming the pen’s body. With the sheath folded around the refill, it snuggles comfortably within and only its much-needed nib peeks out. On folding it, the cover forms a triangular flat-packed structure around the refill, creating a pen with an ergonomic form that is easy to hold and operate, as well as to carry around. The end of the cover has been equipped with a magnet, so you simply wrap the folded pen onto a book, and it attaches itself to the book instantly.

This minimal and elegant piece by Annabella Hevesi called the O TRL lets many of us living in tiny spaces enjoy the luxury of having a movable cart. This tray table is a versatile piece of furniture – use it to store your stationery, kitchen knick-knacks, or as a makeshift desk in work from home emergency scene – the pure and minimal aesthetics of this design make it a perfect match everywhere. The trolley has a slim and sleek silhouette and is constructed using a black MDF board, powder-coated steel, and rubber. Do not be fooled by its humble looks; this tray can bear its fair share of weight and move around smoothly, given its large weight-bearing wheels. Sleek, versatile, and fun, this tray table defines the blueprint of what functional furniture design must be like, a 2020 version of Bauhaus, if you will.

Jupe is a portable off-grid shelter that flatpacks so you can pick any spot on the planet and pitch your tent. The futuristic silhouette is inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey which explains the aluminum pole frame and glowing Firesist fabric exterior which also make it suitable to withstand different climate conditions. Designed by a team of multidisciplinary experts from across the housing, architecture, and engineering industries, including former SpaceX, Tesla, and AirBnB, Jupe is the best in the game. It can be assembled in hours and gives you a 111-square foot space featuring tall ceilings, finished Baltic birch wood floors, a queen bed, and a storage area – think something right in the middle of a tiny home and glamping pod. Mobility is at the core of the design and hence chassis foundation has been created in a way that involves no decking or foundation to be built which makes the shelter adaptable to any terrain, level or not, and leaves the land minimally disturbed.

Höga is a vehicle that adapts IKEA’s winning philosophy of production, packaging, and practical use to give the users a comfortable ride that’s highly functional. This is intertwined with Renault’s advanced mobility platform to create an urban commuter with sustainability in mind. The vehicle’s body is recycled into other products after its lifecycle keeps the waste to a minimum. Design inspiration for the practical commuter comes from the classic Bauhaus principle of clean and purposeful design. The car ships right out of reusable crates to cut on transportation costs, and once it reaches the destination, the containers are reused to ship back broken furniture. Just like IKEA, Höga can be assembled by one person in few hours thanks to its simple LEGO-like attachable frame elements in a perfectly symmetrical design. There are 374 total parts and 114 individual parts, but don’t worry the instructions are easier than those of IKEA!

Switch is designed to make commuting in the city easier and solve the troubles one faces like the frequency of public transport, crowded parking, and poor infrastructure. Currently, you have electric rideshare scooters that are popular in urban settings like Bird, Lime, and Yugo but they come with an added responsibility of parking and crowding the sidewalks. It’s different from its competitors because it is truly portable. The flat-pack mechanism allows you to just fold it up and carry it along even if you’re walking or using a public transport service, you won’t have to worry about loading it and unloading it. It has a sleek build that blends in with your lifestyle and is as easy as carrying a backpack. The scooter comes with a fingerprint-enabled unlock button which is located below the handlebar. One of the coolest features is how the accelerator and brake pedals have been incorporated into the handlebar – it simplifies the user experience and interface!

The Lu chair folds without effort and can be carried around easily. A lot of designs we see are foldable but even after folding not easy to carry around or takes too much time to fold. Made up of plastic, this makes the mechanism work perfectly. As Lu explains, “Many times we find ourselves having to put away objects, perhaps to make room, perhaps to clean the house and sometimes even to take them with us, but above all for furniture of a certain level it is always very difficult. This is where “Lu chair” was born, a dining chair suitable for different types of target, from the most elegant and sophisticated with an eye to detail but also to a younger, fashion-conscious audience. The design is innovative and elegant at the same time and the name “Lu” derives precisely from “luggage” because of its ease of being resealable and transportable wherever you want.”

World’s first paper disposable razor unveiled in Japan! This gives a completely new meaning to the word ‘papercut’! Paper Razor is a sustainable alternative to disposable plastic razors. It is crafted from water-resistant paper like the ones used in milk cartons and it can also withstand temperatures up to 104°F (40°C) in case you like to shave with warm water. The razor weighs 4 gms and only 5 mm thick thanks to its all-paper body with a metal blade-head on top. Designed to be flat-packed, the single-use razor comes completely unfolded and can easily be put together in seconds by folding in the sides and the top to create a rigid, ergonomic razor with a grippy handle. Its origami-inspired design gives it as much strength and maneuverability as a plastic razor while minimizing the use of plastic by as much as 98%. The result? A razor that can be easily flat-packed and shipped, used and then disposed of…safely, of course.

singlemoldchair

Chair 1:1 was born after a rigorous 5 year long design process that gave us a mountable/demountable chair whose every piece was molded in one go. This optimized the mold size, speeded up production, and reduced waste drastically when compared to a traditional chair. “It is sold just as it comes out of the mold, bypassing several steps; it will be the buyer who will complete the process: this is what we call hyper-seriality,” says the designer duo. “When looking at the Chair 1:1, it is inevitable to have a blast from the past, remembering the boxed toy kits. There are no screws nor bolts: assembly is effortless + quick. Mounting an object makes a bond with it and makes you feel its full value; it builds an affection that stops you from getting rid of it.” The fastening elements of the individual parts are made to be easily producible and extremely resistant. It has been designed to be easily stored, shipped, and transported – 26 boxed up chairs take up only 1 square meter which is the key to increasing online sales as well as shipping sustainably!





This cardboard chair is 100% recyclable, biodegradable, and easy to assemble! The MC 205 Cardboard Chair can be flat-packed and requires no tools to put together – something better than puzzles for game night? There were 13 prototypes before the MC 205 was finalized and now the company has released MC 207 which has been tweaked to be more comfortable. The team has also built upon the chair by adding more furniture like couches, tables, and counters made with the same principle. Imagine this but in the shape of the Iron Throne!

Husqvarna enters the electric scooter category with the heavy-bodied Vektorr concept

Building on its vision to reinvent urban mobility by ushering it into an emission-free future, Husqvarna just launched the Vektorr, an electric scooter concept with an almost BMW Motorrad Concept Link-inspired heavy-body design that projects confidence and dominance on the road.

The launch of the Vektorr comes just days after Husqvarna announced the E-Pilen electric motorcycle, and one can even notice a homogeneity in their design language. The Vektorr embodies Husqvarna’s agile, edgy design aesthetic while still judiciously using tight curves to create an automobile that looks sinewy and muscular. The e-scooter relies on a familiar silver, black, and lemon yellow paint-job as seen in the E-Pilen, and has the iconic circular headlight that’s signature to the Husqvarna brand.

The electric scooter comes outfitted with a 4kW motor that gives it a top speed of 45 km/h and a claimed range of 95 km. Designed keeping the urban traveler in mind, Husqvarna said, “The Vektorr Concept is the first electric scooter ever produced by Husqvarna Motorcycles and is aimed squarely at the urban commuter who demands a compact, stylish and effective personal transport solution to fit their busy lifestyle.”

Husqvarna is expected to begin production of the Vektorr in 2022. Customers can get an exclusive glimpse of the Husqvarna Vektorr Concept at the PIERER Mobility AG special exhibition in the KTM Motohall in Mattighofen, Austria. Partially owned by India-based Bajaj Auto through its 48% acquisition of KTM, the Vektorr will be manufactured at Bajaj’s factory, as part of the Bajaj-Pierer Mobility plan.

Canoo’s iconic headlights carry forward beautifully in this UberEats Delivery Scooter concept

I personally love it when logos have a bit of versatility. Like when they actually make sense beyond just the rules of branding. Remember Audi’s ‘4 Keys’ commercial? Or this Mercedes Redsun concept? When you make your viewer have an “A-ha!” moment, that’s just peak creativity to me, and that’s exactly why I love this Canoo scooter concept so damn much!

EV startup Canoo debuted just last year announcing a strategic partnership with Hyundai to change how car-ownership works. The strategy aimed at providing the car as a monthly service to owners instead of a one-time full-ownership model. This would allow multiple owners to use a limited number of cars as often as they’d need, and the car would be smart enough to customize itself based on their preferences… but I digress. What was immediately memorable about the Canoo car was its design language, and specifically its headlights, which served as the car company’s branding too. Ali Berzah Can’s conceptual Canoo Scoot uses that very design language to elevate two-wheeler design, as the Canoo logo now becomes the vehicle’s headlights AS WELL AS its handlebars!

Since the Canoo brand is all about redefining ownership, Berzah Can’s conceptual bike keeps that in mind too by creating a scooter designed specifically for delivery. The ‘Scoot’ fleet of vehicles belong to UberEats, and are operated by their delivery executives to rapidly transport food from restaurants to the homes of the people who placed the orders. The Canoo Scoot follows the company’s form language, with geometric lines and gentle fillets to create vehicles that have structure and discipline without looking edgy. Thermoregulated containers on the back let riders store food in them for the length of the delivery cycle, and that Canoo logo on the front is instantly iconic, creating branding that isn’t just a graphic, it’s clever and valuable too!
