UP

UP is a wheelchair for disabled people that helps them to stand and move in a vertical position. People with additional needs should be able to make individual choices and control their everyday life.

Artist Statement

UP is an electric wheelchair, mechanically aided by arms I created. UP's design is inspired by the famous motorcycles Vespa appearing just after the Second World War. They expressed freedom youth and hope. UP is an object with one meaning that is intended for people who can really enjoy it.
