Shape and form

This post will investigate the final form and design for the locking element of this bike security device. Considering female erganomics and lower back form, alongside relevant architypes.

Looking at these, the form of the product will take inspiration from make-up products, antique compacts and watches.

this decision has been taken in light of the female back, when cycing and sitting the soft curve of the back is still present and this product must sit perfectly within the curve of a female back.

Inital sketches and thinking around forms that will sit well on a female lower back.

A flat spot on the lower back allows for the security strap to sit comfortably.
