Artikcar by Ben Wilson

British designer Ben Wilson has designed a pedal-powered vehicle inspired by a child’s toy car.

Called Artikcar, the vehicle is made of steel tubing and has an illuminated profile.

Wilson will present the design as part of two parades in Manchester and Edinburgh, organised by arts company Walk the Plank.

More about Ben Wilson on Dezeen: Monowheel.

Here’s some more information from Wilson:

Walk the Plank’s illuminated Art Car Parades – full of mechanical mischief – will take over Manchester’s streets This Thursday 26th and in Edinburgh this Saturday the 28th November.

Ben Wilson was one of three artists to be awarded commissioning money to create a mobile work of art, which will join the existing troupe of vehicles.

ARTIKCAR is inspired by a child’s wooden toy car. The Pedal Powered vehicle is made from steel tubing, it steers by leaning and uses an innovative technology to illuminate the car.

If you’re near by please come and see the parades:

Illuminated Art Car Parade, Manchester City Centre, Thursday 26th November, cars on display from 3pm, parade from 6.30pm (Cathedral Gardens). FREE TO ALL

Edinburgh’s Homecoming Illuminated Art Car Parade, Edinburgh City Centre, Saturday 28th November, cars on display from 2pm, parade from 5.30pm (The Mount). FREE TO ALL

The illuminated Art Car Parades have been created and produced by outdoor arts specialists Walk the Plank.

Supported by Art Council England and will be presented in association with Manchester City Council and Edinburgh’s Homecoming celebrations.
