About

Life is a picnic

Is there anything like a picnic on a warm spring day? Sharing a meal and a bottle of wine in a secluded spot: instant romance. Sitting down on wet or prickly grass, however, can put a serious damper on your lovely date. With Springtime, you'll have the solution to all your picnic needs in one neat package: table and chairs for two, plenty of space to store your food and beverages, as well as cups, plates and cutlery. Furthermore, Springtime is easily transformed to fit on the back of your bike – your next picnic in a picturesque spot is just a bike ride away. Life is a picnic, after all.

“I can suddenly see a thing of beauty in the scratch of my pen, it's like dream. I fall in love with this great idea, and in an instant, I'm willing to fight for every inch. In the end, you guys hold the key to making my dreams come true.”– Jeriël Bobbe, founder of Bloondesign and designer of Springtime-

How it works

A picnic basket, table and chairs, and a cycle carrier – Springtime combines three products in one handsome package. The sleek picnic basket turns into a fitted cycle carrier by sliding out the two side compartments and can easily be secured to your bike rack – you're on the move in no time at all. Having arrived at your destination, the Springtime's basic components come apart and fold out into a little dining set for two with comfortable cushions, in only a few swift moves. Unzip the two sides and find your cups, plates and cutlery ready for use.  

Your donation

With your donation, you'll not only receive one of the wonderful rewards listed, but also play an invaluable part in taking the Springtime project to the next level. The funds we manage to raise with Kickstarter, will be used to improve the engineering of the basket, for developing and perfecting the final product, and for the creation of the molds. In other words: your contribution will make possible the realization and launch of an amazing product. The last big step on our way to conquering the world.  


Press coverage
 

Springtime has been featured in raving reviews across the web as well as in newspapers and magazines. Not only in the designer's native Holland, but in publications from France to Hungary, from China to South Korea and from Australia to Russia. Our audience has expanded astronomically since Springtime's launch. Newspapers the Volkskrant (the Netherlands) and Die Welt (Germany) provided access to their massive readership of a quarter million each, while FastCompany and web giant Designboom bring 850.000 and four million unique visitors into the mix, respectively. Curious? Check out our website for full press coverage and updates.

Thousands more have expressed their interest and praise through our website, Facebook and via Twitter.
