Where To From Here will celebrate bike culture in Sydney and showcase the work of progressive designers, artists and makers around town. We will collaborate with a number of artists and makers to develop site and event-specific works. One important collaborator is Chris Rodgers, of Pedal Cyclery. Chris restores old bikes to roadworthy condition, and his work plays a key role in the success of our label and the growing bike culture in Sydney.
The show will celebrate the launch of Spoke & Spool, a new clothing label tailored for cyclists.
Spoke & Spool creates unique garments that are handmade from recycled second-hand clothing. Designed with a focus on functionality and purpose, this is a range for the inner-city commuter who chooses to move on two wheels.
The principle of sustainable reuse is fundamental to Spoke + Spool and has guided us through each stage of design and production. Spoke & Spool was developed as an offshoot of Laura and Alia’s design studies at CoFA in Paddington.
