Berlin, October 24, 2023 - Artist Stephan Meissner of the Berlin-based artist collective Tape That has collaborated with electric scooter manufacturer unu (www.unumotors.com) to design a special edition of the unu Scooter Pro. For this, the artist covered the fully networked unu Scooter Pro with tape art. The unique piece was presented exclusively at an event on October 19, 2023. Interested parties can register for the purchase of the unique piece on the unu website until October 31, 2023, after which the winner will be drawn.
With this limited edition of the unu Scooter Pro, the Berlin-based electric scooter manufacturer combines the clean lines and bright colors of the tapes with the functional and minimalist design of the scooter. Inspired by the possibility of creating something new out of an everyday object, Tape That’s medium of choice is usually colorful duct tape.
"We are very happy that we could win Stephan Meissner from the artist collective Tape That for this cooperation. We are especially pleased that we, as a Berlin-based company, can work together with a local artist collective. With the modern and clear structures of the adhesive tapes, they create a design that breaks with the forms and stands out - similar to our scooters. We are thrilled by the art of Tape That and are looking forward to giving away our special edition to one lucky winner in a few days," says Annemarie Wolf, Head of Marketing & Growth from unu.
As a founding member of Tape That, artist Stephan Meissner, born in 1989, has helped shape the current of tape art worldwide. Since 2009, the artist has been living and working in the capital, where his works are characterized by straight lines and sharp contrasts.

Tape That has collaborated with renowned institutions and companies in the past, such as the German Foreign Office and the Goethe Institute, Adidas, Google, Porsche, Lidl and SAP - and now also unu.
