Piaggio 1 Feng Chen Wang

Piaggio and Feng Chen Wang, one of the most experimental and innovative designers on the international landscape, have joined forces to create a special customised edition of Piaggio 1, the latest urban electric mobility solution from Piaggio.

Agile, light, essential and practical, Piaggio 1 revolutionises the e-scooter concept with a captivating design and real attention to detail. The Feng Chen Wang special edition that will be previewed at EICMA 2021 stands out for its exclusive livery, in which the designer blends the Chinese tradition (Feng was in fact born in Fujian, a province in southeastern China known for its breath-taking natural scenery) with vibrant London creativity.

The watercolour visually combines the natural elements of water and the symbol of the Phoenix that, in Chinese mythology, represents virtue and grace. It is hand-painted using the traditional Chinese brush stroke technique, while the green colour, also used on the seat upholstery and the rims, does not only reflect the indigenous flora, but also universal values such as health, prosperity and harmony.

The collaboration with Feng Chen Wang has also led to a dedicated helmet and a capsule collection of unisex streetwear garments. The fashion collection, presented on 13 October during Shanghai Fashion Week, remodels tradition to make it special and contemporary. Original and surprising garments in which the overlapping of recycled materials is also symbolic of the significant attention Feng pays to the themes of sustainability, the respecting of nature and creative recovery.
