We know how important it is to keep your bike free of accessories, with a minimalist look. The Bookman Bike Light is an ultra-luminous LED light that you can easily attach and remove from your bicycle when riding in the dark.
We just tested Curve Front Light and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised! Mainly because I always thought Bookman was just a design agency that only cared about good looks. But with Curve they prove that form really follows function.
You may be already familiar with Bookman‘s equally handy and cleverly designed bike lights. Blending style and functionality, the minimalist block-shaped lights come in an array of colors, are lightweight, and due to their compact size easy to store.
Now the Stockholm-based Bookman has giving us the solution to one of the problems we have when we bike around – The Cup Holder. A simple attractive way to help city cyclist that also happen to be a coffee enthusiast.
In terms of quality, I hold Bookman in high regard for how they’ve constructed their products. The USB lights are ultra-lightweight, but not to the point where they feel flimsy. The plastic feels sturdy, which is ideal for a set of lights that are designed to be removed quickly, casually and flung into a jersey pocket or rucksack.
The brand balances simplicity with playful, lighthearted design. Their latest offering, the Curve Front Light sees a touch of design ingenuity improve visibility without jumping up the lumen output to blinding heights.
Amazing collaboration this time from my chums at Bookman. A whistle made in collaboration with Acme, the classic whistle company. Super contemporary looking and really tight representation of the young brand's style.
We've seen a cupholder for bicycles before, but so far, I haven't really found one that I can buy. Hey, people who commute to work on bikes need to carry their morning coffee, too. Maybe Bookman's Cup Holder will finally be the one to bring bicycle riders that convenience.
I’ve had many front bicycle lights in my day and this one by far, has the best design and practicality. It’s the Curve Front Light from the Swedish cycling accessory company Bookman.
Bookman is a Swedish brand that primarily makes bike accessories. For me, Scandinavia is synonymous with great design, and with bike culture. The design is as simple as it gets with no unnecessary details. Kind of like the iPod shuffle of bike lights. They are also extremely bright for their size. While these are brand new, Bookman clearly tapped into a long legacy of great design. I feel like I purchased a modern classic.
But it’s no surprise given the young Swedish company’s minimalist, uniquely Scandinavian aesthetic. The conspicuously simple blocks with their ever so slightly rounded edges invite tactile exploration.
The small light-emitting diodes by Bookman are almost cult. Small, easy to fit and do not disturb the look of the bike.
