The transparent glass bubble design was fashioned after the beloved Bateaux Mouches ferry boats that have been carrying tourists on the river since the early 20th century. Developed as a collaboration between Technogym, Terreform ONE and URBEM, the floating gym design been adapted to use ARTIS bikes and cross trainers that power the boat using movement generated by gym-goers.

Carlo Ratti, founding partner of Carlo Ratti Associati said, “The Paris Navigating Gym investigates the potential of harnessing human power. It’s fascinating to see how the energy generated by a workout at the gym can actually help to propel a boat. It provides one with a tangible experience of what lies behind the often abstract notion of ‘electric power’.”
