“Andreas is a student in the east of Switzerland while I work full time for le FabShop, a 3D printing startup in Paris (France)” says Bernier via the detailed ‘how-to’ pictorial posted to the Instructables site. “We didn’t know each other, but were motivated by the project. Andreas took the train to Paris where we spent two days and a half doing this.”

The result is a two-wheeled push-cycle that incorporates both a small number of 3D printed parts (available at leFabShop for those without a printer) and almost all the components of an IKEA Frosta stool. In true DIY fashion Bernier suggests, “You can also build and custom your own parts! They don’t even have to be orange by the way.”
