The Porsche Design P’4911 Baby Stroller by Swedish designer Dawid Dawod not only looks right, it also folds compact enough to fit into the trunk of any Porsche.
This unique baby stroller was created by Dawid Dawod in cooperation with Porsche Design Studio in Zell am Zee, Austria during his exchange semester at FH-Joanneum in Graz, Austria. The project was not only a study in high-end materials and luxury products, it also required deep insight in what Porsche Design stands for as a brand and what characteristics, materials, shapes and philosophies are representing the brand.
Its construction blends a unique mix of materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, leather, ball-bearing wheels, a sleek minimalist design. In addition, the trained eye will notice a number of design elements evoking the Porsche Design style and identity. The telescopic handle has a dynamic shape, which resembles the Porsche Design luggage trolleys. Porsche brake rotors inspired the holders of the ball bearing wheels. Finally, the designer has taken care of the safety aspect of the infant, as the stroller is equipped with a front safety belt. The inner design of the seat in conjunction with the belt and buckle provide a distinctive “racing” appearance
Furthermore, lots of effort was put into creating kinematic and ergonomic solutions for storing and adjusting the stroller.Through research,the designer diagnsed that when parents go with their children to for instance, a park or on a pick nick they often want to bring toys, food, clothes etc. Therefore,the Porsche Design P’4911 Baby Stroller is equipped with a smart storage solution. The storage space is a frame with two nets, it has a zipper attached to the twin nets and the user can fill the space between them with the goods that he/she wants to carry. When the stroller is folded up, the parent can detach the storage pocket and use it a carry bag.
Yet perhaps the most impressive feature of Porsche Design 4’911 baby strolled is that it is highly collapsible. It becomes so small that it easily fits into any luggage compartment, even those small storage space found on Porsche sports cars, while the seat is used into the car as a baby car seat.
It is rather unlikely that this brilliant baby stroller will make it into production, yet the Porsche Design P’4911 Baby Stroller is still great design study.
