Twenty-five years after his Well-Tempered Chair , Ron Arad has used a similar process--in which the naturally sprung properties of tempered steel, bolted in tension, gives a natural yield or “softness”--to build a bike with wheels made of sprung steel. To account for the added flexibility in the materials, Arad’s sprung wheels of steel are in fact a little bit larger than the average bike wheel, says Marcus Hearst, director of the design department at Arad’s studio . But it’s this yield that gives the wheels a slight cushion and makes the wheels work in a practical way.

I don't want everything to be on glass, it just makes everything less tangible and less personal, almost cold. I like having curtains up to my windows, I like cooking on a gas hob, I like reading from a real book, and I like shopping for clothes by looking around the shop and browsing, not by watching them all move about on a screen.
