Purchasing a ticket for this program entitles you to complimentary access to the Exhibition Hall.
A unique opportunity for bicycle aficionados and those who simply admire superb industrial design to join a top custom bicycle designer; the president of the 65-year-old Italian company (Cinelli) that pioneered integrating innovative design and bicycle technology; the owners of two New York shops dedicated to high-end bikes and to cycling culture; and the author of a newly released book on Cinelli—all talking about their favorite subject.
As designed objects, bicycles offer a singular combination of beauty and function and have inspired a wealth of literature and illustrated tributes from bike fans and riders (including David Byrne), Tour de France winners, and artists and writers alike.
The panel features:
- Antonio Colombo, President, Cinelli, Milan
- Charlie McCorkell, owner, Bicycle Habitat, New York
- Lodovico Pignatti Morano, author of Cinelli: The Art and Design of the Bicycle (Rizzoli)
- Richard Sachs, bicycle designer/builder, Richard Sachs Cycles, Chester, Connecticut
- Mike Spriggs, Owner, Gage+DeSoto, Brooklyn
Moderated by Dan Rubinstein, Editor in Chief, Surface magazine
Following the program, audience members will be invited to specially designated areas in the Exhibition Hall for book signings and informal conversation with the speakers.
