Available in limited edition of only 10 units, The Vicious Cycle amazing craftsmanship as the result of collaboration between Duncan MacIntyre, retired frame builder, and Anton Dekker, a composite specialist. You probably know that MacIntyre is South Afriaca’s most accomplished bicycle frame builder, he has worked under wide range of local brands while Dekker has a specialist composite workshop that produces bespoke components for auto companies such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche. This bike is hand built using original MacIntyre frames along with Dekker’s Tri-spoke wheels and contemporary components. If you are interested to get this bike, prepare for $4,800.
The frame of this bike was built by MacIntyre for SA Track Cyclist Malcom Cochrane for Track World Championship in mid 1980’s, and later used by SA Olympic contender Timothy Abbot. The beautiful hand brazed frame is constructed from Reynolds 653 and Columbus steel tubing to provide rider with impressive strength-to-weight ratio, suitable for track racing. The frame was stripped and coppered by Gavin Oliver then given with black lacquer detailing thanks to Malcolm Sampson. Timothy Abbot rebuilt the frame using classic and contemporary components such as Vredenstein, Cinelli and Brooks, 3T, and Campagnolo.
The Tri-Spoke wheels were custom crafted using art carbon fiber composites. The process to produce these wheels include development of a custom mould and hand layering of 4 layers of composites and honey comb, giving rider safety and performance.
“Kure” (also known as ‘sphere’ in Turkish) is a futuristic concept table designed in the shape of a flower for your family dinning room. This table is shaped as a sphere when closed and once you open, it can occupy any corner of the house. A light source is fitted in the centre of the table which offers a blue light to the base of the table. This full-fledged dinning table accommodates six dinning chairs which can also be used for some other purpose. Kure is surely a space cushion more favorable for family dinners and aims to bring together the whole family.
Zero iPhone Radio concept features elegant and sophisticated design. For this project, the designer wanted to come up with minimalist and sleek concept radio with easy access and subtle lines. That’s why there are no buttons in this device, simply a touch screen panel to control the radio. The display zone allows you to see the animated equalizer which makes it a crucial part in the design. This device is able to deliver 360-degree circle sound, the inclined structure offers better acoustic and making it easier for you to detach your iPhone. The metal minimalist base adds elegant touch to the overall look. The designer applies the basic principle of Mies Van der Rohe into his design, less is more.
