Custom ETC…

I love seeing people custom make their possession such as bike, bicycle, car, clothing, etc…  and it is even more interesting to see when their aesthetic principles override the original function and contexts.

なんだか知らんけどすげーー。

Kids putting some motorcycle custom parts on their bicycle.

Beautiful Japanese motorcycle gang bike.  The idea of aerodynamics and comfort are out the window.

I thought it was Gundam.

Nothing to say.


DECO-TORA / デコトラ


Google x Akira Kurosawa

What a postmodern hybrid.  I think the house in the background supposed to be from Seven Samurai.

Ecology (true cargo bikes in Japan)

Every time I go back to Japan, two things always catch my attention, homeless carrying bags full of empty cans on his bike and old Japanese cargo bike called Riacar (rear car).  As Design technology advances, many new ideas and inventions fill our lives.  At the same time, I am more intrigued by these simple and old methods which represent sense of creativity, flexibility and truthfulness.

世の中はエコビジネスで盛り上がっているようだけど、昔のリアカーとかホームレスの空き缶集めほど環境や自然にやさしいじゃないかな。
