The Triclos is designed to accompany the toddler as he grows up, through elements that transform and interchange to assist the child in developing his own motor development. When the child is small, the Triclos is used with front traction like a tricycle. As the child grows, the seat adapts, and when the child is ready the Triclos transforms into a bicycle with pedals on the sides.
Noto is the result of a senior industrial design project from the College of Architecture, Design, and Urbanism at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
