A classic Italian Vespa scooter has been given an exotic and astonishing makeover at the hands of Carlos Alberto.

Using old-world craftsmanship and woodworking techniques, Alberto created this stunning, wooden-bodied Vespa scooter. The level of detail on the scooter is simply mind boggling. A beautiful design made even better by adding exquisite materials.

Implications - As the world has become increasingly mechanical and robotic, there is the opportunity for companies to revive old aesthetics as new and fresh ideas. By incorporating the warm organic look of wood material into a modern day product, companies are able to produce something that sticks out in a world surrounded by cold metallic surfaces.
