located at the newly opened mazda design space in the brera design district, the mazda ‘ KODO – soul of motion’ collection emulates the dynamic beauty of wild animals’ movement. showcased during the 2015 milan design week, the striking line-up, a bike and sofa, combines the automotive brand’s philosophy with the tradition of creating functionally stunning objects. embodying the ‘less is more’ philosophy of japanese art and craft, the bike is a pure reinterpretation of a modern racing bicycle, evoking lightness, agility and speed.
