The artwork of mid-century master designer Alexander Girard creates a new kind of kinetic art. Girard’s colourful and energetic designs add quirk and character to Electra’s elegantly modern Dutch city bike—adorning the frame, saddle, grips and even the bell. Experience art in motion with this truly unique ride.
As head of Textiles at Herman Miller (1952-1975), Girard created hundreds of versatile and iconic patterns such as “Quatrefoil.” Girard’s background as a professionally trained architect shines through his sophisticated and light-hearted colours in highly structured geometric shapes and lines. Custom-embossed saddle with high-quality, weather resistant leatherette coverings. Elements from the iconic La Fonda del Sol Restaurant (1961), these suns capture the flavour and colours of Latin America

Technologies: • Amsterdam® : Many of today’s hybrids allow for a more upright ride. Unfortunately, the legs still pedal straight down, pushing the rider forward or an unbalanced, awkward ride that creates unnecessary tension in back, arms and wrists. The Amsterdam range allows an elegant upright riding position, combined with the right amount of forward pedalling and ergonomic swept-back handlebars, help ease stress on back, arms and wrists making every ride a comfortable ride.
