We make urban biking adventures a walk in the park
The Story of Påhoj
Påhoj is a company based in Malmö, founded by parent and industrial designer Lycke von Schantz. Her idea of combining walks and bike rides with your child took shape during a school project at LUSID – Högskolan för industridesign in Lund, Sweden. Shortly after, she started receiving inquiries from parents around the world and realized there was a tremendous need that she could address. Påhoj was launched in the market, and the journey of providing you and your child with the freedom to embark on city adventures together began.
The Påhoj Team
Lycke von Schantz
It is truly a pleasure to have the opportunity to design not only a great product but also the brand and everything around it. As a mother of two children, I highly appreciate the luxury of being able to pick them up by bike. Especially when I can easily overtake all those stuck in traffic.
My bike is my best friend, and I pack it like it's a pack mule. That's why Påhoj is perfect for me. My kids think I'm obsessed with flowers, and my colleagues call me Martha Stewart. But aesthetics DO matter!
Award Winner 2021
We believe that the bicycle should be everyone's preferred mode of transportation. Imagine a city without pollution, noise, or CO2 emissions, where we can embark on new adventures together and discover hidden gems. By cycling and allowing your child to join you on the journey, you are instilling healthy habits that will last from childhood to adulthood. You know what they say: "Children do what you do, not what you say." Enjoy your bike ride. And walk!
