Cyclehoop founder and MD Anthony Lau is this year’s recipient of the prestigious Alex Moulton Award from the Institute of Engineering Designers. Previous winners of the award include the Dyson design team, Airbus engineer Gordan McConnell and Apple designer Sir Jonathan Ive.
Cyclehoop, which now employs 32 people, was founded in 2008 and has installed over 2,000 of its signature security stands on streets all over the world.
“I was honoured to receive the Alex Moulton Award for our design work particularly as I am myself a fan of the Moulton bicycle and proud owner of an AM7 space frame bike from the 1980s. I am passionate about bicycles, not just as a vehicle for transport or leisure, but as a vehicle to solve so many challenges that face our growing cities from traffic congestion, to air pollution and improving health and providing accessible and low-cost transport for everyone."
