Projects by students at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland were revealed at Milan Design Week 2013 as part of the art and design school’s Savoir-Faire exhibition. Among the projects were smart and functional bicycle accessories that provided simple yet ingenious solutions for avid cyclists. The bicycle accessories included a bell that also functions as a brake, easy zip-tie hooks for bags and water bottles, zip-tie LED lights, a zip-tie bell, a snow chain, a cable style brake, and valve stem caps.
