Husqvarna Concepts

The 401 Vitpilen and Svartpilen concepts from KTM-Bajaj feature 400 cc engines in a modern cafe racer and a lovely street scrambler design. Could this be the shape of Duke-based Husqvarnas to come? We think they could be, because a close look will quickly reveal that the bikes are sporting KTM Duke trellis frames in black, the same upside down forks and rear monoshock with the extremely familiar engine cases with new colours and branding. The third concept (not pictured) was the 701 which is a clean-looking supermoto-style urban creature.

Work
The Productive Cocoon

The media:scape Lounge with Hood from Steelcase is a work-cum-lounging space that creates visual and physical boundaries to provide just enough privacy for multiple activities, like one-on-one interactions, phone calls, focussed tasks, or just a simple time-out. The product consists of two components: A lounger (available in two-seater and three-seater options) and a hoodie that provides a semi-tent feel. The fabric canopy is available in a range of styles and colours.
