What do furniture, bicycles and leather bags have in common? Among other things, Denmark is known for its unique design and cycling culture. This collaboration between the Danish bicycle brand Velorbis and Fritz Hansen combines the best of both worlds. The result is a modern city bicycle, complete with luxury leather bags, where the focus is on the two companies’ shared passion for craftsmanship, materials and aesthetic.
In collaboration with Fritz Hansen, Velorbis has designed a leather briefcase for gents and a ladies saddle bag to compliment the limited edition ‘Arrow Seven 60’ – a modern city bicycle that celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Series 7TM chair and, not least, Danish design and cycling culture. The exclusive Fritz Hansen by Velorbis leather bag collection is hand made in Sweden, ensuring the highest level of craftsmanship fused with minimalistic Danish design.
All Fritz Hansen leather bags are made from the finest quality Italian leather in 2.2 mm thickness for extra durability. Leather hides are vegetable tanned and tannin is extracted from chestnut, quebracho, mimosa trees and tara. All these elements are combined to underscore the exclusivity of the design.
‘The collaboration between Velorbis and Fritz Hansen has been inspiring and effective because of our shared values, driven by an ambition of designing simple, functional and aesthetically pleasing products of the highest quality. Fritz Hansen is always interested in presenting their brand from a new perspective that is interesting to their clients. And Fritz Hansen is always interested in working with strong brands that share their values. The collaboration between Fritz Hansen and Velorbis is therefore a great example of this.
‘Danish design, not least, Danish furniture design, has always been an important source of inspiration for our work, so we view this opportunity to work with Fritz Hansen as a great honour and a big pat on the back.
The exclusive Fritz Hansen by Velorbis leather bag collection has been created in conjunction with an ultra light-weight limited-edition ‘Arrow Seven 60′ city bicycle – to make sure that you ride in style.
