Ciclotte: Design, fitness, decor

The birth of a style exercise

The Ciclotte project was born from the evolution of Ciclò, the original concept of monocycle designed to meet the need for sustainable urban mobility. In a world where pollution and traffic are a constant daily concern, Ciclò, an innovative model of one-wheeled city bike, would have been the solution.

Designed in carbon to guarantee maximum lightness, ease of use and transportability, characterized by an iconic circular shape reminiscent of the retro monocycles of the late 19th century, and transformed into an object of refined engineering, Ciclò in 2007 became part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Italian Design, La Triennale di Milano.

Thanks to the success reaped, first of all by an audience who wanted it as an object for their home, the project was engineered on an industrial level, evolved into a functional fitness version with a special focus on design, making the iconic circle shape its symbol.

This is how the Ciclotte brand and its line have effectively become a must for the Interior Design and luxury fitness worlds.

The Company

The MULTIside of design

Tracing the humanity of function in an object’s shape: this is what it means to see and feel the beauty of objects that embody the desire for an ideal relationship between us, our bodies and the world.

Design is the heart of things, the language, the sign, the code, and the secret that gives shape and identity to both very old objects, perfect and elementary, as well as to others that are technological and complex such as our electronic devices or cars. True design is always singular, unique, and specific; but it is also plural, connective, abundantly resonant, and always MULTIDESIGN. MULTIDESIGN, the company founded for producing and distributing the Ciclotte brand, offers an entire range of services linked to managing product design projects, ensuring close collaboration between its 3 macro-processes and the connections amongst its various phases:
