Innovative Home Exercise Bike Doubles As A Sculpture
The Vela was designed to integrate with home decor and look less like gym equipment.
Lunar Design will debut a radical rethink of the stationary exercise bike called Vela at the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair. Their challenge was to create a bike that broke free from the established aesthetics of gym equipment.
VELA is a cycle trainer that challenges the design expression of current products at home. From a functional object, it transforms into sculpture when not in use to show off the userâ€™s passion for their lifestyle through outstanding aesthetics. Clever integration of beautiful projections around the bike create an immersive training experience. VELA shifts the paradigm of training at home, making it a celebrated activity.
Vela is part of a collection of equipment Lunar’s Munich office has created. In addition to the bike there is also a new rowing bench and climbing wall soon to debut.
