The conceptual 'Orbike' vending machine has been created to offer consumers in urban areas with access to a wide array of different equipment to let them get around the city at their own pace.

The donut-shaped unit would offer a compact solution for consumers to visit when looking to rent a bike for commuting purposes or even off-roading to ensure it's as multifunctional as possible. The equipment is housed in a see-through case that ensures it's seamless to access when looking to obtain a bicycle and/or additional accessories. This speaks to the growing consumer preference to rent rather than own given space constraints in many urban areas.

The 'Orbike' vending machine is the design work of LiuYeQuan and LiYanrong, and is the winner of the Asia Design Prize for 2018.
