Maclaren Baby Buggy B-01 by Owen McLaren (1965)
The first Maclaren B-01 buggy was inspired by a visit from his daughter and her baby. Wheeling around a clumsy, bulky pushchair made Owen consider his background in designing aeroplane undercarriages – lightweight but load-bearing structures capable of folding neatly – and apply it to baby carriages. Using modern lightweight materials, Maclaren developed a structure that could comfortably carry a child and then fold into a space only a little bigger than a folded umbrella. He revolutionised the industry.
