On Tuesday I took a little road trip to something I always look forward to. It’s a biannual event that takes place at the Kortrijk Xpo
. You could say it’s our 'Milan design week
The bicycle is doing very well in 2014 with many new ones finding their way to the market. Finding the right one for you can be hard though. For me personally that would be one that doesn’t stop you from going off the beaten path and with a distinguished design/look. The bicycle that we are going to see after the jump would qualify that description and is coming in the Spring of 2015.
Good things come in small doses. You had to wait quite a bit but I finally had some time to share what I have been collecting. Hope you'll enjoy what you are about to see after the jump.
The lamps that I am sharing today are created by PER/USE
, a new Belgian design brand launched in the Summer of 2013. They are based in Marke and offer a strong mix of furniture and accessories designed by Belgian and international designers. The functional collection, with a distinguished and timeless character, however not missing a contemporary twist, is inspired by known names as well as emerging design personalities. PER/USE works with a combination of new upcoming and established designers, Belgian and international, such as Lucie Koldova, Patrick Séha, José Cabrita, Frederik Delbart, etc.
It doesn't happen often that a new bike design grabs my attention. This one however done by Nike's former design director Eric Duvauchelle
has managed to do that. It took 18 months of design, engineering and passion to bring it to life. The bicycle's name is CYLO
and the frame was designed in partnership with ARRO.STUDIO
from Paris, France.
A little workspace somewhere in your house that doesn't take up that much space and isn't too bad on the eyes. Impossible? With a bit of detective work chances are high that you'll find something that fits both needs. Below you'll find a selection of small desks that I wouldn't mind putting in my living room.
A closer look at two bikes that captured my attention. Both are produced by Dutch brand Koga
that develops and assembles bikes at their headquarters in Heerenveen. My Winter bike is a Koga
and I'm very happy with its quality and would gladly recommend their bikes.
Some of you will know that I love to ride my bicycle. I try to share the beautiful scenery that I encounter along the way via my Instagram feed
. I'm hopeful that my enthusiasm is creating an itch so that others would do the same. Find out why after the jump.
You are probably thinking what has Copenhagen in common with a wheel. Well for starters it isn't something from Denmark but from the United States. The wheel got its name because Copenhagen is famous for all its cyclists and being so bicycle friendly. Discover what the Copenhagen Wheel is exactly after the jump.
