Tokyo Bike

More about slow, than fast, Tokyo Bike believes that speed is not always the aim, destination is only part of the story, and losing yourself in a city’s small back lanes and expansive parks and gardens, is one way of switching off and escaping it all.

Tokyo Bike

Tokyo Bike is a small and independent bicycle company founded by bicycle enthusiast Ichiro Kanai in the old Tokyo suburb of Yanaka eight years ago. Designed for the city, each bicycle weights between 9 and 11 kilos making it easy to carry up to your apartment and light to ride. To make the stops and starts of urban riding smoother, bikes have been designed with a smaller 650 diameter wheel.

Tokyo Bike

The Tokyo Bike story is about reasonably priced, simple bikes, pared back to the basic elements, that are easy to ride and to carry and are available in a wide range of colours.

Currently only in Tokyo and Sydney, Tokyo Bike will be opening very soon in London.

IKEA plus tertial

IKEA plus tertial

An ordinary lampshade gets a transparent porcelain cover with a pattern inside portraying a mythical battlefield of tigers and dragons – which is brought to life when the light is switched on. A new lampshade for a desk light turns a plain light bulb into a mysterious fireball.

Designed by Pili Wu and crafted by Jian-an Su as part of project Yii, a brand conceived by the Taiwan Craft Research Institute that aims to transform traditional Taiwanese crafts and bring them into the contemporary context through design.
