We often take inspiration from everyday items, and our ‘Thurloe’ design is a classic example of this. As keen cyclists, we understand the importance of solid and comfortable handlebars. While modern bikes have come a long way in both performance and comfort, for us, vintage bicycles are the winners every time. Not simply for the nostalgia or the beautiful aesthetics, but because the experience is completely different and something to treasure.
The ‘Thurloe’ was inspired by leather wrapped handlebars found on vintage bikes; the perfect marriage of beauty and practicality. The shape of the cabinet handle is tried and tested, but with the addition of leather wrapping elevates the piece to a new level of luxury and allows for a completely different experience. It was originally designed back in 2003 and is one of our first product designs. Today, it remains a popular choice for a range of design schemes.
