Lévo

  • Lévo

    Lévo is a multi-use cart to transport several objects. It can be used as a grocery cart or at a fair with its baskets on the front. Lèvo’s main structure is formed of extruded aluminum which folds and allows for easy disassembly, ensuring greater durability and a longer product life.

    The baskets are injection molded with polypropylene (PP) and have a rubberized look ensuring strength and versatility. They may also be used independently of the stroller. A simple mounting system allows the choice of using baskets, shopping bags, eco bags, backpacks, or suitcases attached directly to the mounting points embedded on the main structure. It has extruded aluminum spacers in an automotive paint finish, where the baskets fit in a practical and simple manner.

    Lévo features an ergonomic handle, adjustable for different sized users, as well as wheels designed to withstand shock and uneven surfaces. The handle includes a textured rubber coating and is formed by the same procedure as the main structure. The mating parts of the cart and the inside wheel are injection molded from ABS polymer.

    Its primary structure is made of aluminum, while the baskets are made ofpolypropylene ensuring durability and versatility in use, and they may also beused independently of the trolley.

    The project was to develop a multipurpose basket, made for people who seek and are concerned about having a simpler life, focusing on convenience, welfare and the environment.
