When Basten Leijh of Bleijh created the first concept of the Sandwichbike there was no way of knowing the road it was going to take. Thanks to the continual enthusiastic online interest in the concept, the Sandwichbike remained on the drawing table, even in the years when other projects demanded Bleijh’s attention. After much hard work, the Sandwichbike can be pre-ordered and last fall the first two bikes were shipped and delivered at Dudoc Vancouver.
Inspired by the concept of flat packing and home assembly, Basten Leijh of Bleijh, together with Pieter Janssen, designed a bike made out of two wooden plates. Apart from the obvious advantages flat packing has for shipment, the use of two wooden plates gives freedom of printing and cutting techniques, making it possible to give each bicycle its own unique identity.
The Sandwichbike is true Dutch innovative design and for sale at Dudoc Vancouver.
