Perhaps the granddaddy of all the simple, elegant designs is the Cycloc, designed by Andrew Lang and a hit since 2006 when Warren showed it on TreeHugger. The UK Design Council gushed: “The Cycloc is a minimalistic triumph of form, function and social awareness”. It is so minimal that Lang was worried; according to the Guardian:
Despite citing his creative vision as one that celebrates design simplicity; "paring products back to their fundamental elements," he wasn't initially convinced the idea had legs. "At first, I thought that's too simple, so I explored a few options before coming back to it as the most elegant."
Being mass-produced out of plastic, is it relatively cheap at £59.95 at the online store and is available in America as well.
