4,000 year old design, futuristic materials, smart, beautiful, tough and light.
Inspired by the first kayaks, which stretched animal skins over wood, this Kayak from O Six Hundred in Australia brings a 4,000 year old design to our modern culture.
Only 30 easy pieces make up the frame of the kayak. Cut with a precision CNC router, the hoop pine plywood is incredibly strong and snaps together, perfectly. At 10 kgs, it's lighter than a toddler; and far, far quieter. Encased in translucent carbon fabric, you'll slide through the water effortlessly.
Kayak is imagined by Ben Cooper and designed by Andrew Simpson of The Balmain Boat Company. "If you're strong enough to lift it, you're smart enough to build it," said the company, which sells the kayak kit for 2.000 dolars.
