Like a return to basics, Leaf is a reinterpretation of the original boat. Echo to the dead leaf which floats on the water’s surface, the yacht has clean lines. Its innovative design, high performance and use of renewable energy makes navigation a real pleasure for everyone. Leaf has the ideal size for adventurous boat trips with family and friends. The electric clean boat is steered via an i-pad. A solar textile over the starboard console provides the energy. Leafs easy navigation system is a new experience worth to try!
Reminiscent of the vintage splendour of the 50s and 60s, the inspiration for this project comes primarily from the simply rugged design of these age-old motorbikes. However, in fitting with modern society's ecological ideals, the Black Shadow H-E utilises hybrid technology, producing a modern, environmentally friendly bike that draws on the simplistic beauty of vintage styling. Combining old styling with new and future technology, the motorcycle maximises the use of a range of materials whilst maximising the power to weight ratio.

Pedalling assistance is provided. You can use it as a normal bike, with or without the supportive battery. The cargo also allowed transporting 2 kids or one adult.
This is sportscar styling and concept design for near future. This is air flow technology. Body is streamline shape that is nose stagnation to rear end. And then aerodynamics fender attached. Plan view is bottle neck shape. This is combined fenders. Gap of its fenders are aerodynamics function. It is air intake and outlet. Rear fender is hyperbola aerodynamic style. Furthermore, this design is additional color version. It is orange and black. And additional aero parts. That is more sports styling. And energy is EV. It is a future environmental sportscar.
