3-wheeled scooter for ages 5 to 10
Kimi is one of the world’s leading companies specializing in developing and manufacturing unique electric scooter platforms for urban space.
Riders’ vast age range requires specific emphases and values between various age groups, so we were required to design two configurations for children and adults, conveying safety, innovation, and speed.
Based on our observations of various age groups and the technical and ergonomic emphases we received from the company's engineers, we identified significant points to generate new added value. We have created different volume work models adapted to the size and needs of the age groups for the specification of new aids that did not exist in previous versions.
The 3-wheels structural configuration is designed for young riders at the beginning of their journey. This intermediate stage helps the child acquire stability and confidence in the vehicle while maintaining the riding experience of two-wheeled scooters at later stages.
The structural design challenge was to generate a new visual language to transition between those developmental stages. We have collected sources of inspiration that move between these two worlds to create a new form that, on the one hand, provides the feeling that the object is suitable for children and, on the other hand, resonates with a more mature language.
