Children’s future depends on what they use today. This is why we developed Bixie, a fun, sustainable and safe product for the next generation to change the global attitude towards the environment and product design.

DESIGN

Bixie was inspired by the nature that surrounds our studio and the superb craftsmanship of alpine carpenters. Our goal is to provide children with a balance bike that looks like a real bicycle but made of natural materials.

BALANCE

Children who learn how to balance at a young age have better coordination. The acquired nimbleness leads to increased performance in sports, as well as excellent physical strength. Better balance also helps when transitioning to a pedal bicycle and it gives children great confidence in their physical abilities.

WOOD

Bixie is made out of beechwood grown in the nearby Alps. Beechwood is an excellent material choice for the frame as it is hard enough to offer support and stability, yet sufficiently pliable to enable manufacturing of the parts. This natural and renewable material makes our product environmentally friendly, sustainable and, unique.

OUR STORY

Andrej Kregar got the idea for creating a wooden balance bike when his daughter celebrated her 1st birthday. As she was going to use a balance bike soon, Andrej went shopping for one only to find that most stores offer plastic or metal, one-size-fits-all, childish-looking bicycles.

Trained as an architect and an industrial designer, he decided to design and develop a sustainable, natural and plastic-free bicycle for his child to grow with it. The designing process of Bixie was bumpy but fulfilling, to make something enjoyed by children, liked by parents and harmless to the environment and society. 83% of parts and craftsmanship that go into Bixie are sourced locally within a radius of 30 km (20 miles).

The bicycle is made to look like a grown-up’s bicycle, yet it exhibits playfulness in its rounded design. Andrej decided to keep the natural color intact, making the bicycle appropriate for all genders. The seat height is adjustable, thus making the bike suitable for children of different ages and heights.

Andrej felt that as an industrial designer, a position that comes with power and responsibility, he must ensure that the products that go into production are useful, aesthetic and sustainable. Andrej’s goal is to make beautiful, timeless products that will stand the test of time, rather than contribute to the throwaway culture.

Lastly, Andrej and his team insisted on using wood since it is an extremely durable material and a valuable part of our heritage. The oldest wooden wheel in the world, the Ljubljana Marshes Wheel, was found only a few kilometers away from their studio. It is over 5000 years old and this whole time was buried in mud. Maybe the same thing will happen with our product, and hopefully, even after 5000 years it will still be used by children.
