Young Bristol-based design and build studio, Huxlo, has confirmed the launch of its latest product, Maurad, a flat-packed, easy to use, and affordable answer to a common bicycle storage problem.
Digitally designed, manufactured and hand-finished in the UK from from high quality and sustainable FSC approved timber, Maurad is the brainchild of founder Matthew Mew, who dreamt up the concept whilst studying for his Engineering Masters at the University of Bristol.
Huxlo is seeking to crowdfund over £10,000 via the Indiegogo platform. Aiming to upscale production after a string of smaller successful production runs, Maurad is being brought to the masses in a 30 day public campaign starting on 21st August. Contributors to the campaign will receive their very own Maurad.
With safe and secure bike storage being an ongoing problem for commuting cyclists, Huxlo created a solution from a simple concept design and many iterations that would keep their bikes indoors, off of the floor and save on valuable floor space. Maurad arrives as a flat-packed kit, ready for self-assembly. Its precision cut and manufactured parts mean that all of the components fit together perfectly forming a solid and durable mount.
Huxlo have a production-ready and cost-effective product, which they are now looking to upscale. They have secured a local manufacturing partner in Bristol, with the capabilities to produce Maurad on mass to Huxlo’s specifications and high standards.
Maurad is designed to hold an average adult-sized bicycle and it is precision crafted from birch plywood to hang on the wall. Maurad will compliment any contemporary space with its simple design, utilising the walls to save precious floor space. The light birch plywood of Maurad is inspired by Scandinavian design.
