The Springtime is brainchild of Bloon founder Jeriël Bobbe, a Dutch designer whose passion for “pure and honest materials and the magic of simplicity” manifests itself in the basket’s clean and uncluttered appearance. At first glance, the Springtime resembles a bento-like container with sectioned-off compartments for your gear and grub. Slide the two halves apart, however, and the basket morphs into a balanced carry-on for your bike.
Popping off the top reveals a wooden tabletop and a pair of expansion leaves, with the two sections doubling as chairs.
And forget spreading out on a blanket and eating uncomfortably on the ground. Popping off the top reveals a wooden tabletop and a pair of expansion leaves. The basket handle flips down to create the table leg, while the two sections double as chairs.
Although the Springtime isn’t available for sale just yet, Bloon expects to have the product for sale in May—just in time for a summer’s worth of picnics.
