Never seen one of those before. To me, that doesn't look like the best solution; the center of gravity is pretty high for that cargo volume. For not much more length, you can get a much larger volume and a lower CoG, like this one:

Probably made in Holland/Netherlands since Famke is Dutch. Her other bike is an Azor Umafiets, a typical Dutch upright city bike.

Not a bike I would ever want. That front load is super high off the ground meaning a very unstable ride. Plenty of quality and also cheap not so good but slightly better set up front load bikes.

That's made by Fietsfabriek. She got it at Rolling Orange in Brooklyn about 6 years ago.

These are actually quite stable and easy to ride.

Does it fold up? Looks like they started to build a Bent and changed their mind half way thru

With a real load that high? I have my doubts. Sure a backpack or some small sundry items but I cannot imagine a full heavy load of groceries or small wriggly flesh bags being stable at the front.

It's not going to work as well as a bakfiets for capacity or weight but it carries more of both than a standard bicycle and is easier to maneuver than a bakfiets - it fills a nice middle space. I don't know that I'd want to carry 200lbs of potatoes in one but several bags of groceries works well. Keep in mind that it's slightly lower than a typical front or rear rack. It can hold more than panniers and I prefer the weight in the front than hanging off the back in panniers.

If you want a low-tech inexpensive variant on the theme, there's this:

Not as much cargo volume, but you can add a rear rack. Center of gravity looks similar to the Fietsfabriek. Front brake and lighter wheels extra, and choice of transmissions is one- or three-speed.

Cool.

That is such a weird frame. It is like a recumbent that was converted to upright. Look at that steering mechanism.

I have occasionally thought about a cargo recumbent bicycle with an electric motor built into it. Great thing about electric bikes is with pedaling you can greatly extend range.
