‘nello’ is a small, magnetic bike bell created by milan-based designer odo fioravanti for palomar. made to be little enough for carrying in a pocket, but loud enough to be heard, ‘nello’ is capable of producing 80 decibels of sound with every ring. an elastic strap provides easy fastening, and is topped with a magnetic mount for the bell. to activate, a user only needs to lightly tap on the top of the sphere. ‘nello’ is capable of making three distinct sounds, which are cycled through every time the bell is detached from its magnetic support.
