Design
Where form meets function
4 more

Eltipo Graphic Design Studio has just debuted its “Black-White Fixie,” a bicycle featuring (as the name suggests) a classy pairing of glossy white and matte black on its body.

Upon initial glance, one may consider the bike’s form to be entirely functional and compact, and while that may be the case, in reality the bike serves as an artful decoration for the “CNT DWN” pop-up shop. The most compelling element of the bike is the level of detail put into what looks like a simple piece from the distance; upon closer inspection you’ll find that the handlebars and seats have been adorned by supple brown leather engraved with a three-dimensional geometric pattern.

Check out the images of the bike above, and for more artistic installations check out this reimagining of classic paintings as LEGO figures.
