I'm in the process of creating paintings of items inspired by space exploration in the 1950's and 60's. While doing my research I came across the 'Spacelander' bicycle and it was love at first sight. The following is a description of the Spacelander from the Brooklyn Museum:
"The Spacelander is a marvel of postwar biomorphic design. Its curving lines and amoeba-like voids represent the mutation of the prewar streamlined style into a new expression based on organic, rather than machine-made, forms. Although the prototypeŚmade for a 1946 exhibition of British industrial designŚwas a critical success, Benjamin Bowden failed in his attempts to have it manufactured. By the time it finally went into production in the United States in 1960, tastes had changed and the price of the bicycleŚ$89.50Śwas too high. It is believed that only about five hundred examples were ever sold, making it one of the rarest and most sought-after industrial designs of the mid-twentieth century."
