SKATE ORBIT WHEEL

THE FIRST EVER SKATE

Degree thesis 2006

An extreme enthusiasm for snowboarding in the early 2000s has given rise to the idea for 360. I aimed to invent a snowboard that could also be used in summer (but not the classic skateboard). The 360 has first been revealed in Bozen/Bozano in 2005. In 2006, 360 has been awarded the Volvo Design Award along with other prizes and it has become known all over the world.

All skates currently available worldwide are the results of this idea.
