The DJ Trike

The DJ Trike is a vehicle for urban play and exploration that transforms public space from a neutral space into a collective, memorable place.

The DJ Trike is a vehicle for urban play and exploration that transforms a neutral public space into a collective, memorable place.
Inspired by bicycle and tricycle cultures worldwide, the DJ Trike was created as a vehicle and platform for urban communication and interaction, as well a method to transcend common perceptions associated with current pedal powered transportation. By appropriating a utility tricycle from Beijing and re-introducing it into the context of contemporary urban street culture, this music-inspired trike enables DJs to freely roam the city streets. Powered by a rechargeable marine battery and a power inverter, the DJ Trike is designed to house the audio/visual equipment you need to create sensory-filled social interventions, project onto architecture and infrastructure, and use public space for play. Thanks to its mobility, the DJ Trike’s can reclaim, activate and enhance public space. By creating catalysts for social interaction and public engagement, the DJ Trike redefines the urban experience by directly connecting with city street life.
