The art bike auction is a collaboration between the legendary bike shop and cafe Schicke Mütze, Danish bike manufacturers Coh&Co Copenhagen and former Dutch national champion cyclist turned designer Iris Slappendel.
StoneWeave, the world’s first recyclable composite bicycle frame
The name “StoneWeave” refers to a radical new frame building technology developed by Coh&Co Copenhagen. The unique material composition – a composite of stone, glass and carbon fiber – makes for a non-corrosive, tough and long lived frame structure with inherent vibration dampening abilities. Add to that a degradable resin system which makes it possible to reclaim and reuse the fibres at the end of the bike’s lifetime and you've got yourself an urban game changer.
Global Footprint Network
All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Global Footprint Network. Climate change can be very abstract. Questions like "do my private efforts really matter?" and "what should I do to generate a more sustainable lifestyle" are questions most have asked themselves when taking on the challenges of a new sustainable lifestyle. The Global Footprint Network provides user friendly ways to understand the connection between lifestyle and climate change helping our understanding of urgency and the importance of shifts to green mobility – like biking.
