The subject of this bachelor’s thesis was to design a storage solution for cycling helmets and accessories in public spaces. The project was made as an assignment to Finture Oy. During the last couple of years, the popularity of cy- cling has been growing, and this has highlighted the need for the development of cycling more prominently than be- fore. People want to support cycling and encourage ways to allow them to move safely by providing useful additional services related to cycling.

At the beginning of the work, I did background research about existing storage solutions and benchmarking, this process was followed by a user survey of stakeholders and a separate interview. Later on I did more research of different materials and RFID locks. Ideation, sketching, and character models went hand in hand within the design process. A three-dimensional model was designed, which was also used to build two prototypes.
