Designer Builds a Contraption that Allows Bicyclists to Create Lampshades as They Ride

U.K.-based designer Mark Colliass has devised an ingenious contraption that allows people to create a lampshade while riding a bike. The device rotates a lampshade mould when fitted to the front wheel of an ordinary bike. The user pours jesmonite, a bio resin, into the lampshade mould and begins to cycle, the mold rotates and begins to form a hollow cylinder - after about 40 minutes of biking, the jesmonite sets to create a new lampshade. Speaking about the project Colliass says, "People need to reconnect with products and one of the best ways to do that is to involve them in the manufacturing process."
