ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (april 16th) – The high volume mail transportation bicycle Roodrunner* by Amsterdam design agency Springtime has been nominated for the prestigious Rotterdam Design Prize. Despite the name, the prize is awarded bi-annually to the Dutch designer of the best product of the two preceding years. Springtime, best known for its foldable Tango, is up against design heavyweights like landscape architect agency West 8 and fashion design duo Keupr/Van Bentm. Which is what makes the Rotterdam Design Prize so unique; all innovative designs are considered, regardless of discipline. Needless to say, the Roodrunner is the only bicycle nominated. The NLG 40,000 prize will be awarded on 3 May in Rotterdam.(JW)
*in Dutch, Roodrunner means Red Runner, referring to the main colour of the mail services. Pronunciation is similar to Roadrunner.
