MATTE BLACK & PINK
The stunning lamp that doubles as a space-saving bike rack this year pays tribute to the legendary maglia rosa. Here is the bespoke artwork of new limited edition.
Celebrating its original blend of interior design and cycling passion, highlighted by the made-in Italy heritage, also this year Vadolibero joins the Giro, the historic race born in 1909 and become one of the most famous Grand Tour of the world.
Inspired by the entirely Italian route of Giro 102, the spectacular bike rack that doubles as a stylish flooor lamp pays tribute to the legendary maglia rosa, conceived in 1931 by the race inventor, Armando Cougnet, to distinguish the winners of the Giro stages.
Coherent with Vadolibero graphic style, essential and sleek, fitting into the most sophisticated home decor, VERTIK GIRO102 plays with the chromatic contrasts between the matte black and the legendary pink hue with a glossy finish.
The unmistakable maglia rosa hue lights up some elements of the bike rack, creating a glamorous chromatic contrast, enhanced by the glossy finish.
A fine line runs around the base framing the Giro d’Italia logo, that stands out on the smooth matte black background, echoed by the hand varnished shiny spheric stem’s cap.
A pink circle points out the touch sensor switch, that allows to dimmer the lamp brightness and turn it on and off. When VERTIK GIRO102 is switched on, a luminous blue dot reveals the sensor.
As details truly make the design of a product, also the leather used for the strap that blocks the fork has been tinted in the same maglia rosa shade, as the leather that wraps the metal pin as a handlebar tape.
As the other models, VERTIK GIRO102 is very easy to use. Once the back wheel is placed in the base groove, designed to fit all kinds of wheels, you lift your bike upright and, the first time, you screw the pin in the suitable threaded hole: it can support the fork or block it from above, you decide which is easier for you.
Before screwing the pin in, you tuck it in the fork strap, provided with a row of black automatic buttons. You just wrap the strap around the fork and close the button. Thanks to its adjustable length, it securely blocks all kind of bicycles.
The base, made of hand-varnished rigid polyurethane, sits on a revolving metal apparatus: it allows to direct the lampshade according to your needs.
And it makes it easier to park the bike: you just swivel it around to place the wheel and then orientate it in the desired position.
VERTIK GIRO102 doesn’t need any assembly: it’s delivered already mounted, ready to be switched on.
