Bike to the Future is a joint effort of Design museum Gent and the IMF Foundation curated by Thomas Blanco Wittouck and Elisabetta Pisu, which offers a glimpse of the future of the bike. Both talent and inventiveness are the driving forces behind this exhibition, where brilliant ideas and ingenious prototypes are key. By combining form and technology in different ways, designers reinvent the bike time and again. The result is a photo finish of design, exquisite craftsmanship and industry.

The exhibition also showcases contemporary models, such as the electric bike ‘M.A.S.S. SNOW’ by Philippe Starck, as well as prototypes and experiments with unusual materials and functions. For example, the bendable bike of young British designer, Kevin Scott, is brought to Ghent for the occasion. The importance of bike accessories cannot be underestimated either. For example, the magnetic bicycle light ‘iFlash One’, designed by the Danish studio Kibisi, the transformable bicycle picnic baskets, created by Bloondesign or the ‘Hövding’ airbag helmets bring out the best in the aluminium steed.
