Bivo is a lightweight system, for camping, panel camping, cycle touring, and adventure motorbiking. In short, camping applications where weight savings and packing efficiently are a concern.
Originally focused on improving the ‘camp cooking’ experience, Bivo’s surface raises to 400mm, optimal height for kneeling or seated use, communal or otherwise.
Using tension the stored gear is held firmly as one compact unit. At camp, the compact form is released and assembled into a camp work surface and carry-all gear store. Their combined use mitigates wet conditions and resulting unclean equipment, so users can focus on outdoor fun.
Sample parts were fabricated to evaluate designs as the project progressed. This culminated in the creation of a full prototype system for the project’s final evaluation.
