Hi—I'm Guillaume, a Creative Director from Paris now living the Dutch life in Amsterdam. Until I save up enough money to realize my dream of becoming a star-faring astrotourist, I’m realizing new, transformative ideas, back here on Earth.
Founder, Creative Director
Context Amsterdam has some impressive ambitions when it comes to generating renewable energy. By 2025, the city has pledged that 1/4 of its electricity will be sustainably generated, but in the centre, packed with monuments and protected buildings, solar panels are not permitted. Other infrastructure necessary for the transition, like electricity substations and transformers, are way too big or just too ugly to fit.
Mission How to transform a city that can’t be transformed?
Idea The S-PARK, a bike rack reimagined that redistributes the electricity produced by people on their bikes, to their own neighborhood.
Above Case Study for S-Park.

At the end of the day, when everyone comes back home and parks their bike, the energy is then redistributed into the neighborhood’s electrical grid, providing enough clean electricity to power all the surrounding streetlights, to play video games, or power a fridge for a full day. In more concrete terms, for a rack of 30 bikes, with an average cycled distance of 3.6 km per person everyday, it would harvest around 1kWh. Also, per year, it’s 615 kg of CO2 that is not released in the air.
Above For a rack of 30 bikes, with an average cycled distance of 3.6 km per person everyday, S-Park would harvest around 1kWh.
The S-Spark is designed to fit perfectly in the Amsterdam cityscape, making a clean energy infrastructure part of the environment. Its shape is inspired by the sinusoidal curve of AC current—just like electrons coming together as a stream, neighbors are coming together around an initiative that saves money and generates clean electricity.
