Playing with a bug…
The pursuit of speed is primal and alluring.
The fastest a man ever traveled under Motor-paced human propulsion was 167 mph (268 km/h). It’s hard to comprehend, considering we rarely crack 100 mph on our motorcycles. Full disclosure; it’s scary as hell and the thought of peddling a bicycle anywhere near that speed is just unfathomable. Luckily we have shops like Donhou Bicycles in Hackney, London to step up to the plate making it a little harder to look in the mirror and call ourselves men. They also earned some extra style points by doing it in the wake of a Ford Zephyr 6 Mark III.
Freunde von Freunden - Karen & Christian Boros
In the Boros residence – a former Second World War air raid shelter built in 1942 in central Berlin – visitors can easily lose their way in the maze-like corridors of bare concrete. There, Christian and his wife, Karen, live with their son amidst paintings by Elizabeth Peyton and a series of installations by groundbreaking artists such as Olafur Eliasson. It is a dream home that once seemed impossible to realize, but has now become an art manifesto for Berlin’s historical Mitte district, where change is the norm.
