Just a few minutes south by plane from Stockholm is Gotland, a lush green island in the middle of the Baltic Sea. At the north end of the island, there’s the wildly serene seasonal fishing village of Hallshuk, where the Swedish electric motorcycle brand Cake developed, honed and officially launched its first production model: the Kalk OR. (We rode that bike along the island’s trails and a purpose-build mini-motocross track, over a year ago.) Cake’s first road-legal production bike, the Kalk&, is now available and we rode it on the considerably less idyllic streets of Manhattan to see how it adapts to one of the busiest urban vehicular environments on the planet.

Nothing gets me through a workout like cranking up some bangers. And while in-ear headphones can create head-thumping bass by sealing your ears off from the world, they also isolate you from the sound of cars, bikes, and other people, which can be dangerous.

I’d ridden the motorcycle part of the way up a small dirt hill, and was trying to simply reverse my way back down when I fell off the machine. As I went down, I tightened my grip, inadvertently pinning the throttle. I soon found myself underneath a pirouetting motorcycle.

The Shoreditch Design Triangle is a loose association of shops, exhibitions and showrooms, united by little more than geography, but it always serves up something wonderful, and often something pretty weird too. Starting with the latter, London-based Mexican designer Fernando Laposse transformed the entrance to CitizenM’s Shoreditch hotel into Sisal Sanctum – an outdoor seating area protected by pretty gloomy looking “giant guardians” – all entirely made out of sisal, a natural fiber harvested from a species of Agave cactus found in the South of Mexico.

the analog motor ‘AM1’ might look and ride like a traditional bicycle, but really it is capable of double the performance in comparison. its ultra-lightweight, minimalist, aluminum framed design is enhanced with a detachable 24V battery that gives riders that extra push, whether they are commuting to work or leisurely cycling through the city.

In the crowded space of global design weeks, London’s Clerkenwell Design Week has a distinct advantage: not only is the area home to a huge number of architects and design businesses, making it a truly local celebration, it’s also blessed with interesting spaces to showcase the designs in. The installations and shows can be found in everything from a former prison to a church and a nightclub, as well as scattered along the design trail in central London—a far cry from impersonal big-box shows. CDW is now on its ninth year, and this edition includes a mix of familiar names and new faces, and more of a focus on venue content than previous years. Much of the thrill of Clerkenwell is, as usual, seeing the specially commissioned new design projects that are part of CDW Presents, as well as wandering around the area’s numerous showrooms to discover new launches—this year sees over 400 new products launch during the three-day design extravaganza. Read on for our must-sees and highlights from CDW, which is on until 24 May.
