I’m a little late on this but there is a Design Book Fair this weekend at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T) One program in particular seems very exiting to the world of cycling with a panel discussion on leading innovators into the design of bicycles.
“Bikes and Books” a celebration of Bike Design is Saturday, October 28th from 3pm-5pm.
Here is more from the editor and chief of Designers & Books, Steve Kroeter.
“One of the programs we are most excited about highlights bicycles as design objects and the books that inspire bicycle people. Here are the members of that panel:
Moderator: Dan Rubinstein: editor in chief, Surface Magazine
Richard Sachs: builder/designer Richard Sachs Cycles
Mike Spriggs: owner Gage+DeSoto
Lodovico Pignatti Morano: writer and consultant
Antonio Colombo: president and owner of Cinelli
We think the fair is going to be a wonderful weekend-long celebration of books and design for the New York design community and all New Yorkers generally.”
