Sykleri is a information pillar concept designed for cyclists. It has three screens, of which two are on the sides of the pillar for passing cyclists. The third screen serves as an interactive screen providing area related information for the people stopping by. Design for everyday mobility (LAD) project, administrated by Metropolia UAS started in 2011. Our team of industrial designers and interior architecture students joined the project in 2012 by rethinking what kind of information should be shown, based on the survey we conducted. The outcome of our team was the developed concept of Sykleri.

Sykleri also collects information about cyclists for the purposes of urban planning. That is why the city of Vantaa wishes to make a working prototype in Myyrm채ki city district. In my internship I developed Sykleri further and for my thesis I will design the final form of the prototype planned to be built and piloted in summer 2014.
