65 years ago famed Italian cyclist, Cino Cinelli, retired from professional cycling and founded his eponymous bicycle manufacturing company. Credited with setting the standards for frame and component design, “Cinelli has led the evolution of professional cycling and defined the ideal of the classic bicycle: from the classic Supercorsa racing frame to the cutting-edge MASH fixed-gear pursuit bikes ubiquitous on the urban riding scene.”
Cinelli has remained at the forefront of parts manufacturing with boundary-pushing products like the first plastic racing saddle and the controversial Spinaci handlebar, which was banned from professional competition. The company has also sought input from well known cyclists, designers and artists such as Keith Haring, who contributed the record-breaking Laser bike.
The company, now located in San Francisco, has just released a tribute to Cinelli’s legacy. Published by Rizzoli, Cinelli: The Art and Design of the Bicycle, includes a conversation between fashion designer Sir Paul Smith and Cinelli president Antonio Colombo as well as over 200 pages of two-wheeled eye candy.

The opening of a new cancer treatment center in Nottingham isn’t the sort of thing that usually makes headlines, but when it’s designed by Piers Gough, founding partner of London-based CZWG Architects, with interiors by fashion designer and Nottingham native, Sir Paul Smith – then it does. This will be the ninth Maggie’s Centre to open in the UK, and after looking at some of the other locations, it’s clear that good design is an essential part of their treatment.
Frank Gehry designed the Dundee location (with a wavy roof line and all) and Zaha Hadid is responsible for a surprisingly angular Centre in Fife. I’ve never been a fan of her work – or bulbous, cartoony design in general – but her Fife location is amongst my favorite of the various and impressive Centres. I definitely like it better than the new Nottingham facility – with its interjecting green ovals, oddly punctuated by a rectangular balcony and windows, the entire building looks more like one of those wooden, children’s shape-matching games. At least the inside looks bright and cozy!
