biomega’s latest design by kibisi is the nyc bike. the design is based on the innovative copenhagen bike, re-engineered to make commuting safer and more comfortable. the ‘cph’ featured a drive shaft instead of a standard chain, while the nyc opts for the slightly more conventional belt drive, something i’ve been keen to try out since moulton released the tsr2.

the nyc features gear and brake cables routed through the frame, with front and rear disc brakes and a choice between 2 speed and 8 speed hub gears. another interesting feature is the built in front mudguard on the downtube; i’d love to see if this actually works. the front fork is also treated with glow-in-the-dark paint, absorbing light during the day and giving some additional visibility at night.

kaymet trays

kaymet have been producing aluminium trays, trolleys and hotplates in bermondsey since the 1950s. it seems like the company are having a bit of a brand refresh, similar to falcon enamelware a couple of years ago, and their products are gaining new recognition. the website, which is still being updated, has been given a much needed modern look and the product range has been carefully edited and tweaked. you can still visit the old one, which is packed with facts about their products.

i saw these trays in utility in brighton recently and was really impressed by the material and build quality. they’re available in 14″ and 18″ sizes for £65 and £85 respectively.

the thirty lamp, designed by samuel wilkinson for zero, is a wall mounted light that can rotate through 360 degrees. the shade is angled at thirty degrees from the surface, meaning it can be directed but still gives good general light. while the function is quite technical, the soft, minimal form means it would not look out of place in a domestic setting.

  • MAPs-Sabi-Space-collection_dezeen_4
  • MAPs-Sabi-Space-collection_dezeen_3

this collection of bathroom products was designed by map (the people behind the kano kit) for californian brand sabi. the design centres on a universal wall fixing to which most of the elements attach. products include a magnetic hand mirror, a towel rail, floating shelves, pegs and a larger wall mirror. each product comes with everything needed for easy installation, including 1:1 template stickers for positioning, and an option for simple attachment using high-strength, self-adhesive moisture-resistant tape.
the nice simple shapes, clean lines and well chosen colours are reminiscent of barber osgerby’s lunar collection for authentics, and make for a really nice collection.

solid

  • Solid by Terence Woodgate Pendant Cone Bk Oak On
  • Solid by Terence Woodgate Downlight Cone Walnut On
  • Solid by Terence Woodgate Downlight Cylinder Nero Marquina On

solid is the first collection from terence woodgate’s eponymous lighting brand. the collection of pendants and downlights are simple, geometric forms in carrara and nero marquina marble, oak and walnut. the light source is LED, and each features a triangular support that allows the fitting to be adjusted and locked into position so that the light always hangs true. a neat little design detail to solve a surprisingly prevalent problem with pendants.

the c15 is the new streamlined cambium saddle from brooks. the cambium c17, released last year, was the first saddle from brooks to be made from a combination of organic cotton, natural rubber and cast aluminium, as opposed to the natural leather saddles they are so well known for. it’s been a huge hit so far, and this new racing model looks certain to join it.

the limited edition release is planned for the 15th of june, with standard versions available in october. you can also register to win one of the first 100 from the brooks site.
