Horse Cycles is a small one-man custom bike shop tucked away in the streets of Brooklyn, NY. Each frame is made with love and care, innovation and inspiration and is 100% unique. The bicycles are made to fulfill each individuals needs by considering who you are, and where you ride. Horse's goal is to make precision bicycles one at a time using the best possible materials while working in concert with the customer to improve their riding experience. Horse offers a small alternative to a massive production based industry by paying attention to the individual to create something that is made locally, by hand, and with no limitations.
Klaus Lichtenegger is a designer, a sculptor, an artist, and most of all a craftsman.
Originally from Austria he is now living and working in Tuscany 'because it is beautiful' as he states with his charming Austrian accent. Lichtenegger creates unique pieces out of leather, wood, metal and other carefully selected materials. When listening to his story you can feel his passion and love for creating, for materials and the process of doing something with his hands. It is the material that inspires him, merging with a profound understanding of its processing and its possibilities as well as a clear vision of the final product. Lichtenegger's design is rather minimalistic but still full of possibilities. He tries to avoid traditional thinking and leads his thoughts onto new pathways, creating a rather intuitive functionality.
It is of great importance for him to design his products in a way that they'll become more and more beautiful by time and usage. Each piece should tell its own story and alter with its owner. Creating something with his hands is both, his greatest desire and plasure.

The setting was already intriguing. A Greek from Pontus, living in Athens is a luthier of some of the best Spanish guitars. His name is Vassilis and he is not only an accomplished luthier but also a charming human. We spend 3 days with him in his small and packed lab in Athens, where we learned a lot, laughed a lot and in general had a great time. The end result combined with the music of Edstard left everyone more than satisfied.
