Casualplay Kudu (Baby Stroller) by Casualplay Design Dept .
2012 - 2013, Silver A'
Inspiration
At Casualplay we are trying to picture how a newborn baby must be feeling. Natural environment is preferable for our baby s surroundings. This is our starting point when we design a new pram. Animals and vegetation tend to be our biggest influence. Organic shapes, aesthetic coherence, visual harmony, all this means that our prams can be easily interpreted by our eyes. Kudu comes from an African antelope with big curdled horns. This nature form has inspired irregular shapes as an art object.
Creativity
KUDU presents irregular shapes and geometry in structure made of high strength deep drawn plate aluminum. This technology is innovative as all the other products on market are manufactured using aluminum extrusion. The main advantage lies in the simple lines, different geometry and the number of sub-assemblies, parts and joints of the pushchair that are kept to a minimum. Therefore, Kudu is very easy to recycle as the chassis only has 3 parts: Handle, front and rear assembly.
Design Challenges
The kick of Kudu was to manufacture a carbon fiber stroller using a free shape language. Some samples were made and after that, in order to do a mass production, design has been adapted in aluminum, made from a deep drawn plate, which has been welded, polished and then painted by hand.
