The illume is a bicycle that combines a simple bike design with advanced technology. To overcome the problems of riding at night, the design merges the indicator, brake and headlights into the frame in a way that it affords a safer ride. A lithium-ion battery and an actuator that transforms kinetic energy to electrical energy power the lighting system that is integrated into the frame.
Crafted from aluminum and carbon fiber, ‘illume’ provides complete suspension with a suitable form.
Designer: Nikhil Kapoor
