VELA the exercise bike which thinks it's art

275x250.jpg Exercise equipment isn't normally the most attractive of objects, but a design firm aims to change that by reimagining the exercise bike as a piece of art.

The resulting VELA from Lunar Europe in Munich looks like it would be as at home in an art gallery as a gym despite begin a fully functional piece of exercise equipment.

A spokesperson for the design firm said: "Home fitness equipment usually looks as if it belongs in a torture chamber – chunky and heavy, it often leads a shadowy existence in the guest room or basement.

"Our goal was to create highly functional fitness equipment which, besides its sporting uses, will adorn any living room in the same way as an aesthetic sculpture. The objects thus combine ‘life’ and ‘style’ in the best possible sense."
