For some, the discomfort of sitting for long periods of time can turn them off from a pleasant picnic at the park. Designer Jeriël Bobbe has solved this problem of awkward picnic-sitting discomfort and we have his beautiful documented process from ideation to fabrication right here.
Springtime: A New Way to Picnic
“You know, I’m really bad with sitting on the ground…my muscles are too short, I guess; I hold still for about five minutes, and then I have to stand up again.”
-Designer Jeriël Bobbe
Mounted on a bicycle, the modular unit (which can also be carried like a traditional basket) has space for plates, flatware, cups, and of course, the food. The unit unfolds to become a personal cafe tableau.

Jeriël is currently negotiating with suppliers to bring the Springtime to market. For those of us with aching lower backs and a sweet spot for outdoor concerts, let’s hope he does!
