showcasing their latest work at the designboom mart in toronto during the 2013 IDS, frédérique beaubien
and yannic ryan of canadian studio F&Y present ‘les classiques’ – a series of minimal wooden handlebars.
influenced by legendary cycling races, the collection aims to revive the elegance and panache that once
reigned our roads. hand-crafted in montreal, the accessory pairs a combination of various hardwoods with
aluminum and brass components, embodying a traditional skill-set.
