The full story
Bookman is a Stockholm based brand that makes accessories for bicycles and for the people on them.
One challenge in this project was to design something that would fit Bookman’s product family with their clean lines and iconic expression. We came up with a solution that avoids bulky screw mounts on the bike, and in that sense followed the tradition of their light, slim and detachable USB bike light.
One other important element was the use of materials which makes the product becomes a natural part of most bike designs but also, construction and functionality-wise, use the materials best suited for it’s specific purpose.
Cup holder structure is made of spring steel, which return automatically to its original shape when bending the material, almost as a memory. The rubber part that is made without glue or screws, preventing scratches on the handlebars, and holds the cup holder and cup in a stable position when cycling.
The two rings are made in two different sizes, which allows the product to hold both large and small cups.
The Bookman Cup holder comes with a storage cube for flat storage and transport, and also for easy storage in your bag when you’re not on the ride.
