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 user’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.
