Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Series 7TM chair, the Arrow Seven 60 city bike is looking good for its age. Designed as a collaboration between Danish bicycle company Velorbis and Danish furniture designer Fritz Hansen, the bike was built with the modern urbanite in mind. While at first it may seem odd for two drastically different fields to work together on a bike, it holds true to the Danish love of cycling culture, and the belief that a bicycle is a piece of contemporary furniture. Featuring a frame hand-built in Germany, both a leather saddle and leather grips, a copper bell, stainless steel mudguards, and even a leather name-plate, this is not the kind of bike one takes off-roading. Its quality radiates a desire to be hung on a wall like a trophy, or kept indoors as a tasteful addition to the furniture. But all these exclusive features (part of the fact that the bike is being manufactured as a limited-edition) make it all the more tempting to strut around town; separating the cycling enthusiasts from the plebian bike commuters. This is a bike for one who holds craft with the utmost regard, and showcases the pinnacle of Danish design.

Amid the unrest of earning his Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from RISD, Nathaniel manages to find the time to read, write, hang out with friends, play drums, and listen to music. Nathaniel has learned a lot about architecture firsthand thanks to opportunities to live and work in Rome and Brooklyn during the past year. Coming from a family with strong roots in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Nathaniel has always maintained a strong love for NYC especially, and after his studies finish up in Providence he may move there for a while. He hasn't decided yet. You can connect with him via Linkedin or by visiting his Portfolio page.
