Designer: Neil Simpson

Categories: Transportation | Product Design

Year: 2031-2040

Overview: The taut lines and slender profile of the carbon fiber monocoque frame optimize penetration of the air. Also constructed in carbon fiber the wheels, with 80mm deep rims, add to the efficiency of the overall package.

Everything is fully integrated, including all the cables, the brakes and the battery which powers the fully electric gear shifting.

Intelligent design solutions mean that the cyclist can easy find the most efficient riding position, while the gear and brake controls both fall easily to hand. The oval chain rings further enhance the rider’s power transmission.

Cloaked in matt black and highlighted with a rich copper, the bike is a symbol of power and elegance, ready for the battle against the air and time.

Overview: Infinitas is the 300 foot (91.5 meter) yacht concept. The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The two major features of the yacht asserted by this closed loop infinity symbol are achieved by carving out stern and mid section elliptical deck constructs.

A central structural “spine” holds the loop together allowing the yacht’s superstructure to seamlessly flow within itself. The added benefit of “infinity” is the realignment of traditional functional areas.

Within this realignment, the main deck living room, and dining room are detached. The dining room moves forward and is separated from the living room by a massive pool deck.

This new deck location allows for the first time, direct access to dining room and kitchen for expanded activities, in combination with the living room/salon.

There are three methods to traverse the pool deck. First is a direct outside bridge / walkway which bisects the pool itself. This walkway has underwater openings in its support system, allowing swimmers to dive from one side to another. The pool has the option of being covered for larger venue needs.

The second method of crossing the pool deck is an overhead sky bridge which connects to the main stairs and elevator. The “sky” bridge is clear glass floor and ceiling allowing natural light to penetrate the pool below.

The third method is through a lower level lounge which features glass portals into the pool.
The main level contains the two aforementioned decks, living room, dining room, kitchen, storage, and bow deck (with helicopter pad).

The interior design of the space, and others, reflects an intense minimalist palette with a dash of attitude.

The main salon also features generous 12 foot ceiling height and fully glazed walls creating an island within the yacht.

The second level up is reserved for a series of guest suites and secondary bow deck. The owner’s suite occupies the third level with “sky bridge,” pilot house, and upper deck.

All decks below are currently designated crew quarters, storage and mechanical, engine room activities.

Infinitas is designed to accommodate 16 guests and crew.
