Eighteen MA Product Design students were tasked with designing and creating alternative lifestyle products based on components from the iconic Triumph Bonneville T100.   

The event in December saw 18 students from Birmingham City University’s Institute of Art & Design submit their alternative products at the preview exhibition at Aedas, Colmore Plaza in Birmingham. 

Nick Orme won for his design of a corkscrew using parts of the Bonneville’s right-hand twist grip. Second place went to Wa Ya-Lin for her fruit bowls made from the T100 wheels, while third place went to Elena Matayas for her innovative use of mirrors to create a jacket and helmet stand.  

Stuart Wood, Chief Engineer at Triumph and one of the three Triumph judges, said: “We were impressed with all of the entries but Nick’s design, which used a Bonneville brake lever, master cylinder and handlebar grip, really stood out. His corkscrew was an innovative use of motorcycle parts that created a lifestyle product we could really see customers buying.”

Pictures of some of the designs can be found on Triumph’s Facebook page here.
