It’s no secret we’re fascinated by micromobility here at Quarterre. There are lots of reasons for this but one of them is the design challenge it represents. By their very nature, most micromobility solutions need to be stripped back and simple. There’s no room to hide behind heavy excess body cladding or soft trim panels. Nine times out of ten, like a Richard Rogers building, the first thing you see is the structure and it is not easy to make this look good whilst keeping an eagle eye on complexity and cost. It has made us often go back and look at classic small cars and how their designers solved these problems, how they ended up creating timeless products despite the incredible limitations they faced.
