About this concept:
“Rennholz” is to be understood as a statement for e-mobility and has been developed for the “Akkuschrauberrennen” at the HAWK Hildesheim.
The vehicle is driven by a standard Bosch cordless screwdriver and built out of bent wood. Therefore the concept opens up new perspectives on the use of sustainable materials for vehicle construction. Besides sustainability, wood brings some more benefits to vehicle construction. The natural flexibility of bent wood, for example, has a positive impact on driving comfort.
The Vehicle concept developed by the design students Jirka Wolff, Andreas Patsiaouras and Marcel Heise, won the grand price of the jury and audience award at the “Akkuschrauberrennen” 2011.
