The monochrome has been many things over many years, from revolutionary event to corporate decoration, but rarely has its value as a form of transport been seriously considered. A Monochromobile is a found object – a discarded, dirty and often broken warehouse trolley – and a bright, shiny, panel of intense colour. Launched at the same time as the A Class Mercedes, these works, unlike the Merc, were not recalled because of safety defects. The One Wheel Monochromobile is a compact, entry level, monochrome.
