Self-production is:

Not just “building your own projects.” It means rolling up your sleeves, taking charge of your own ideas and not accepting things as they are a priori.


The wooden bike

Wood is an amazing technical material. It was the first composite used by humans and unlike metal, it can be worked both at room temperature and with CNC machines. This bicycle reflects its beauty and performance thanks to its customized hollow frame.

A second version is already being designed, once again made of wood and produced with digital technologies.
