Ciclotte is the design exercise-bike and an exclusive furniture complement, which has been recently awarded by the Province of Milan as “Life Enhancer” and “Fitness product of the year” by FIBO. Completely developed with innovative solutions and realized by using high-tech materials like carbon, glass fibres and steel Ciclotte is a product entirely made in Italy, created by the designer Luca Schieppati, whose inspiring project (Ciclò) is now part of the permanent collection of the Triennial Design Museum of Milan (together with Ferrari’s car, Riva Yachts and Castiglioni lamps, just to make a few examples). Ciclotte is the sole design exercise bike existing in the market and it also unique under a technological point of view, since it is the first exercise bike to use an electro-magnetic resistance system with epicycloids transmission.
Design is the heart of things, the language, the sign, the code, and the secret that gives shape and identity to both very old objects, perfect and elementary, as well as to others that are technological and complex such as our electronic devices or cars. True design is always singular, unique, and specific; but it is also plural, connective, abundantly resonant, and always MULTIDESIGN. MULTIDESIGN, the company founded for producing and distributing the Ciclotte brand, offers an entire range of services linked to managing product design projects, ensuring close collaboration between its 3 macro-processes and the connections amongst its various phases: CREATIVITY. PRODUCTION. DISSEMINATION
