For this project we had a fun design brief.
For the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (before we knew what 2020 would hold) a car company was going to design a one-off BMX stem to celebrate the entrance of BMX to the Olympics. Our class was all assigned a car company to use their design language to inform our stem design. I was assigned Mercedes.
The stems would be CNC machined out of aluminum and we had to consider the manufacturing limitations in our designs.
The top three designs were made and used by our client. My stem was one of the three winners.
