Design student Ryan Scholtthauer creates a self-assembly vehicle using IKEA's winning philosophy of production, packaging, and practical use, in combination with Renault's advanced mobility platform. The vehicle is called Höga and takes design inspiration from the classic Bauhaus principle of clean and purposeful design.
Höga considers sustainability from the start of its lifecycle to the end. The vehicle arrives in a reusable crate to cut transportation costs and is reused to ship back broken furniture. With a skateboard platform to house the wheels, Höga's self-assembly can be done by one person in a few hours. At the end of its lifecycle, the vehicle's body is recycled into other products when it no longer functions as it should.
