Featured in Swiss architectural magazine Hochparterre’s “Raumtraum” section, these visualizations of future architectures, by Zeitguised and Matt Frodsham, search for the accidental in computer driven manufacturing processes.
Taking inspiration from the overlapping stages of precipitation and evaporation, elements of the hydrologic cycle were studied and distinguished to represent each bicycle, reinforcing notions of repetition, renewal, reflection and change.
For the construction of the bicycles, four 1970s Japanese-made Ishiwata touring frames of high-grade vintage steel with fillet-brazed joinery and lugged construction were acquired as the canvases. These frames, which are no longer in production, are extremely durable, strong and flexible, with the ability to withstand extreme stress from the toughest urban riding conditions.
All bikes were built as single-speed kinetic sculptures and fitted with coaster hub brakes.
Lighting doesn’t get much more basic than this lamp from Andrew Berg. Hand carved and crafted from off cuts, this red walnut base lamp features a large Edison light bulb, a silver toggle switch and a cotton power cord.
