The majority of home gym equipment design focuses on function, neglecting aesthetic appeal and lacking the ability to blend into a home’s decor.
Introducing the exception: the Ciclotte could carry the superlative of best looking or possibly best all around. This design-y exercise bike came from one of Milan’s leading designers, Luca Schieppati, and produced by the Italian Lamiflex Group that debuted in 2010. Ciclotte coexists with a home’s design just as would another piece of contemporary furniture.
The center wheel is reminiscent of a 19th century monocle; the bike features sleek design elements such as the carbon handlebar, a touch screen display, and stylish supporting fins for stability.
Style did not impede the functionality; designed to reproduce road bike dynamics it is ideal for high intensity spinning workouts. Ciclotte operates on an epicycloid system, which works by generating a concentrated magnetic field using a copper ring that is rotated at a high speed in front of five magnets. The resistance can be controlled via the touch screen.
Ciclotte will likely retail for £6,800 (read: not cheap) and is available in Carbon, Silver, and Purple. This design has secured a spot as part of the permanent collection on display at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan.

Heel-Side is taking a look at the fashion fitness label ADAY. ADAY targets the millennial consumer (or those that have acclimated the characteristics embraced by this generation) of the work hard – play hard a constant push-pull of work life balance and flexibility. So much to do and so little time.
Founders Nina Faulhaber and Meg He partnered up while working at Goldman Sachs over their mutual love of boutique fitness. The developed the line to solve a daily struggle of their own; intelligent busy women with endless work life balance, exercising and staying healthy being one of them. The current marketplace athlesure offerings were lacking the versatility of fully active clothing that doesn’t look active. Leaving you with the choice od lugging around daily workout clothing changes or not working out – far from ideal.

Placing equal emphasis on contemporary ready-to-wear design and high performance quality pieces won’t hold you back from whatever your daily daily calendar throws your way – and through all of the beautiful chaos in between.
