Running With the Hunted

In truth, I can't believe it actually took this long for Vitsoe to team up with Brooklyn-via-Japan-based Kinfolk Bicycle. The collaborative event, aptly titled Built to Last, highlights the stunning designs of Kinfolk's jaw-dropping bikes and the timeless Vitsoe shelving system (for which I would choke a puppy to own). Can't you just see Dieter Rams strolling around on one of these steeds? And instead of preaching his 10 principles for good design, he would just nod sagely and point at his riding machine. In the meantime, here's a few of my favorites from Kinfolk...just make sure you bring a towel to clean-up after yourself. And, as always, if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it.
