Events: Bicycles at London Design Week

October 4, 2011

Bicycle design has come a long way since our first Schwinns. During the 2011 London Design Festival, I came across several new bicycle designs, which are tapping into the way we like to get around the city these days. For more photos, including a spectacular bike rack/bookcase from Tamasine Osher, see our Facebook album: London Design Week; Bicycles.

Above: Australian designer Gary Galego designed the Carbonwood bike to explore the possibilities of a composite-material frame. The bike's carbon-fiber frame is sandwiched within a wooden frame, resulting in a bike that has a comparable strength to one made of steel. For more information, go to Matilda.
