Kenneth Cobonpue’s Phoenix roadster, a biodegradable concept car made from bamboo, rattan, steel and nylon, it’s propped somewhere between Tata’s Nano and Tesla’s Roadster.That funky-looking body should last the average length of ownership and it can be replaced or naturally returned to the Ma Earth………..
The two have come up with a concept called the Phoenix Roadster, the world’s first biodegradable car. It was built in just 10 days, is only 153 inches long, and in addition to bamboo is made from steel, rattan, and nylon. It’s currently on display at the Imagine and Innovation in Milan.The outer skin of the vehicle is designed to last around five to 10 years, the average lifespan of a car. But if owners wish to keep their vehicle for longer, a new skin can be purchased and fit onto the chassis.The Phoenix was created by product designers Kenneth Cobonpue and Albrecht Birkner and was built in just 10 days of bamboo, rattan, steel and nylon. At 153 inches long, it is a small and elegant solution to a big and ugly problem: the waste created by old cars that outlive their purpose. “This project attempts to unveil the future of green vehicles using woven skins from organic fibers mated to composite materials and powered by green technology,” says Mr. Cobonpue.
