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.

  • Nardi steering wheels is a good reference Igor. These are very classic. Chrome is retro.

  • hey guys,

    They are not made of bamboo!
    we use ash, walnut, cherry, wenge and morado.
    The inspiration are the beautiful Nardi stearing wheels you find on old italian cars.

    Yes, but they can not charge $90 if they use just bamboo…

  • It’s nice in first glimpse.. but if you dig inside philosophically, the fact that you’ve chose to use
    A traditional method of knife making and made a handlebar is irrelevant, and conflict with the
    The idea of ”readymade” in particular (not that you’ve tried too, but still) and design in general. To use just a bamboo twig for the same purpose, for example, would make more design sense to me..
